|From Cochno Rd car park, over Jaw Res dam edge and into gap between forests. New forest road at top of beleach. Onto road back south to end, up through old trees, over wall, round clearing to summit. Wee bit of tree bashing at the end. Great views from clearing.||iangalbraith||19/01/2020|
|Heading E from summit was astonished to find the end of a new forest road, huge construction wide enough for 2 attics to pass. Could be useful for access, I followed it down to head to the next hill.||Adrian||30/10/2019|
|No2 bus to Hardgate, then walk up Cochno rd to end of public rd and follow signed track to Jaw reservoir, then follow tree line E until S edge of escarpment, which is tree free. At high point head NE into trees to high point. Lovely views over Glasgow though hazy due to low winter sun. Final E Dumbartonshire TuMP.||Thearlaichdubh||08/01/2018|

|Round of 5 from Cochno Car Park. Follow signed path, not shown on map, to Jaw Resr. Cross dam, to track to W of summit. Up escarpment via trees and clearings. Onwards to Birny Hill.||Minto||03/07/2017|
|From Cochno CP, up Jaw pipe track. Then approach HP from due W via escarpment and trees.||agentmancuso||01/04/2017|
|P Cochno CP. Up road to near W Muirhouses. Signed path/track to E of Black Loch. Wall to bend then some pushing and breaks to obvious top. Easy coming back - followed the footprints in the snow.||chrisbien||11/02/2017|
|From S (Cochno car park NS 5031 7400), up Muirhouses track then across pasture and boundary wall. Revisited trig, then to tussocky E summit (355 co HP outside wood, a possible summit contender), then followed break a short way into wood, then 200m of quite easy mature spruce, followed GPS to spot ht, then uphill a little to well defined HP at edge of small mossy clearing a few metres to NE. Descended NW, similar terrain, passing N of area of windthrown trees. Then to Birny.||RHW||13/12/2015|
|Should've read Colin Crawford's notes though probably wouldn't have changed my plan as I wanted to visit trig anyway. A nightmare of a hill for the dedicated enthusiast/obsessive bagger. From the east pushing through dense forest late in the evening, burning across watery mossy troughs eventually getting to three very small clearings and finally the one where there was just enough satellite view to show the little gps man on my phone trig map precisely on highest point. Slightly scary struggle in fading light.||vegibagger||26/05/2015|
|Don't approach from the trig - a poor proposition due to the distance through the trees. I went from the firebreak on the western edge, which has a steep little escarpment above and gets you reasonably close to the high point. Mind you, there can be no guarantees that I actually got there, the trees being so close planted and thick that GPS is dodgy and there's no line of sight.||Colin Crawford||10/09/2014|
|High point difficult to ascertain in trees.||campagvelocet||27/03/2013|
