Circular walk from Newburgh taking in Ormiston Hill, Lumbennie Hill and Black Hill. Ongoing forestry works up here meant a rough harvester track now goes to within about 15 metres of the likely summit. Still no views though.benalder28420/06/2020

Fence from field to N is tricky so best use gate at 24615049pp28/02/2020
Parked in Auchtermuchty Common car park at 23662 13444 and walked up the road to the vehicle track, following it up through the wood. Through a gate into the wooded area, along the track, then through trees to the summit. Returned through more widely spaced trees to the track. (Would have been better to have followed the track in the forest a little way round the bend to the right on the way up)LizH24/11/2019

Parked on verge on bend at 241148, then followed the forestry track round to 30m below summit, then up thinned forest to cheeky wee cairn. Fields to W are ploughed.Thearlaichdubh28/03/2016
From the B936 along the track and through the forest. A wee cairn marks the top!Play2End22/11/2015
Parked near Woodmill then used to track to bag Cowden Hill then returned down track. Then up field towards Woodheads Hill which has Grange Hill trig near the summit. Continued off-piste through woods to farm track then oat field towards woodland on Black Hill then returned back down to Woodmill.Dugswell230/07/2015

parked 400m north before track cut up through wood to rejoin track to the top.robertphillips20/02/2015
Parked where track leaves road just N of Woodhead. Tracks to get to N edge of trees, then back in for the last 100m to summit. (Same parking spot for Cowden Hill, as per fasgadh.)mae08/02/2015
From B road to w. Parked on verge of track before gate. Cheekier, but easier parking through the gate on RHS. Cut the corner in track - up through woods on tracks made by cows. Track in forest now, smooth, dry and dusty up to the picnic bench. From here up through trees to summmit. Descent NW to forest edge, and back down track.Minto27/09/2014

Forestry operations mean that the track from NO241147 is now horrendous soft wet mud after the bend, and it gets deeper higher up. Best to avoid it entirely and just walk on easy grass to the west of the trees that are west of the track, cross fence where there is a rubber sheath and stone, then edge along the slime into the main forest NW of the summit area until you see the picnic table. It's not bad after that, some trees have been felled but it's ok going, still no view though.alda25/02/2014

From Grange of Lindores by farm track going SW and then SE to "viewpoint" beneath pylon. Then over fields to fire break which I followed round hill in clockwise direction until I recognized table and benches.russell6113/03/2013

Approached from West along decent track then followed forest ride to immediately south of the summit. Last 200m is a fight but easier from south than west which was gorsy and more conifers.andy15/05/2010
Parked on verge at 241 149. Followed track SE and then N. Through gate to track which turns S down a firebreak. Bizzarely there is a picnic table. Then through trees to topchrisbien08/05/2010

pleasant walk, +/- open wdld at summit, no view. park on bend, follow tk to 105150, when it turns SE, continue E to top RHW25/12/2003
Easiest to stay in the field until the overgrown track appears on the other side of the fence, cross it & start on the track but head up vaguely R until above where the brash is. Once there head slightly R again in clear trees to summit, small pile of stones.Belfarm blank
