Parked at Hillview cottage (limited). Track to Steelend then up past a rather muddy cattle feeding station to the fort then short drop/pull to summit. There is s track (not on OS map) that meets the dip between fort and summit that drops down to the north.N.Morters16/11/2019
From racing circuit over Knock Hill and Easter Cairn. Good views. Returned on the track by the wood, then across to the end of the track to West Lethans. Muddy/boggy in places. Some cattle between the hills.LizH27/10/2019
From Steelend contouring round to west of hill passing Killernie castle and farm and ascending west slopes.hillsman06/07/2019
From Easter Cairn following fifewalking.com route from Steelend. Steeply down into col from summit and up beside plantation to summit cairn. Decided to follow the described route down which became a nightmare! Headed west a little from the top then followed a fence south down hill over pathless hillside. At next fence junction followed fence east. This turned into deep grass over rough ground following a new deer fence. After a struggle reached a gate in the deer fence. This lead into a forestry project with young trees, rough ground with thick grass over waist height, and numerous thistles. Conditions underfoot lead to extremely slow progress south heading towards another gate. Reached this gate after a very deep ditch is done entered a field with working tractor. Headed straight across the stubble field and found a stile over fence a short distance from car parked at Steelend. In summer this route is rather slow due to faint paths disappearing into very tall clingy grass.Jubilado05/07/2019

Noisy ascent with Knockhill racetrack in full swing on one side and Saline Gala Day sound system on the other side. Views on the top as far as Ben Lomond made up for it.andy07/08/2010

From Knock Hill, over Easter Cairn. Skirted this to the north on the way back out, then along track past West Lethans. Friendly collie followed me out. Nice summit.agentmancuso06/12/2008
No problems this time, but got a mauling by the local goml for leaving core path 616 and trying to use core path 616 to the north of Saline Hill in 2015. This hill is going to be a regular pilgrimage from now on.fasgadh25/09/2008
