I circled the summits around glen Sherup in the Ochil Hills, getting the two Donalds, Innerdownie (610m) and Tarmangie Hil (645m), plus a couple of tops, Whitewisp Hill (643m) and Ben Shee (516m). Accessed from the Glen Sherup forest car park, across the A823 from the Glen Devon Holiday Park. Clear blue skies all day, which was actually too bright and hazy to give any views to the south, but windy and cold on top, 04:25 hours all in.chillyman803/01/2020
Note, Gleds nose route still usable, but firebreak access the glensherup side is now further on, marked by post and cairn.Belfarm 25/08/2019

A terrific traverse of 8 Ochil New Donalds with Martin66, Smithy & MarkH with cars at both ends. From the parking area by the side of Castlehill Reservoir, up the track to Glenquey, followed cut grass path from NW of reservoir beyond its limit on map all the way to the summit.

With J, F & A from Glen Sherup P up through forest and R, SW, onto ridge, following wall/fence to summit of I. Continued along wall/fence down to Bentie Knowe and Whitewisp Hill. Good visibility and fine weather although cold W wind at times. First visit was on 08/09/2015. Third visit was on a KHWC walk on 07/03/2020 in very wet conditions; the ridge was snow/ice covered which with the strong wind made progress v slow. Two walkers (C) turned back about 1km from summit and the remainder, 9, continued to the summit of I, deciding there to abort the walk, around Whitewisp, Tarmangie and Ben Shee, and to return to the Glen Sherup carpark.jacobus03/07/2017

Solo. From car park on SE side of Castlehill Reservoir. Along tarred access track to Glenquey Reservoir and untarred track on NW side of reservoir. Up something of a track and then straight up hillside to summit of Innerdownie. Forested but trees well spaced and deciduous rather than conifers as shown on my OS 1:50,000 map. A lot of vegetation though. Wall crosses summit area - highest point between wall and cairn. Continued to Tarmangie Hill and Whitewisp Hill.pwbellarby07/07/2015

First hill on a round which included Tarmangie and King's Seat. Dry and bright.Roblex14/05/2014
From Dollar Glen, I contoured around the southern fringes of White Wisp. Pain in the arse, out on a limb hill, that only just makes it onto the Donald list. The torture was made worse by having to trudge through snow where no others had been for a while, then having to go all the way back to continue the planned itinerary. i have always said that there is never a bad hill but this one comes close (on that day anyway).thenomad19/02/2014

Afternoon ascent from Glendevon, whilst heading for Braemar. Also ascended 25/10/2017. It is now probably most convenient to ascend from Glen Sherup carpark, following the Reservoir Trail on to the north ridge, as parking is restricted in Glen Devon itself.JohnW22/06/1996
