Local walk whilst visiting relatives: Long c15 mile circular walk from Forfar taking in Dunnichen Hill and Fothringham Hill and lots of quiet country roads. No issues social distancing! Heavy downpour at the summit of this one - so took advantage of the shelter offered by the folly mentioned by others.benalder28413/06/2020

From south bottymyre parked in woods track to the top.robertphillips15/11/2015
Park at junction of road to South Bottomyre then just a case of fallowing a forestry track and common sense to gain the mast then the watch tower can be easily seen. The trig is further east an well hidden by bracken so GPS will save time and energy.Dugswell223/07/2015
From S Bottomyre - park off road in wood. Just keep faith with the track which goes round the SE side. 150 m after the impressive summerhouse the path bends back and goes up the ride to the mast. Somewhere around the nearby watch tower is the summit, but there is a lot of fallen timber, so don't worryThearlaichdubh26/12/2014
