Up from the Cat Hotel with Steve T. good views.Play2End04/03/2020
Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log: Mmmm pricklyangelduo, not sure I agree with you. Drove to farm and rang number on gate as gate shut, advised we could walk through farm but must park at the bottom of the road. As we were just leaving the owner called to say we couldn't go through the farm as the 'bulls' had just been put out in the field. So we decided to have a look from Pankerton side. Not to bad, through pasture over wall, fence and then another wall and fence and then a steep section to the top. Shame someone dropped their phone on the way back (me!) so we had to do it nearly all again! Luckily only half way and so thankful for the track on my GPSr so we could follow it exactly.thejackrustles13/09/2019

Asked permission to go through Myothill Mains farm yard. Granted without question so long as I closed the gates. Great viewpoint on gorgeous afternoon.Campbell Singer01/11/2018
After Skea Craig. Angry farmer at Fankerton meant I had to cut up through fields to W with cattle and gorse. Much, much easier from S. Good views. Final Falkirk TuMP.Thearlaichdubh22/07/2018
Just a few horses to dodge.summitter17/11/2017
Walked in from farm track to south west. Crossed wooden gate, walked through what was once a quarry and ascended easily from there. Afternoon walk on a very wet day, but a disappointing hill given its interesting appearance from afar.JohnW06/06/2017
Parked at foot of drive to Myothill Mains. Called at house to seek permission to go up mast track, which was readily given. Then many gates to trig, which was surprisingly not in a mast compound.ngthack16/05/2017
Chose the obstacle course route from a layby on the B818: climbing the first gate, through the next two, over a wall and carefully over a barbed wire fence, all the while keeping a mutually comfortable distance from a herd of frisky cows. Wonderful views of the Ochils from the summit.Nick Down104/08/2016
From the north. Parked in lay-by then across the field, boggy in parts, over two fences then up to the trig. Summit is extremely muddy. Signs of cattle although none about at this time of year.Stevend125/01/2016
P entrance myot mains track to open fields full of horses to top.robertphillips15/12/2015
Didn't fancy walking up the mast track past Myothill Mains, so used the track to SW. One gate, one fence and easy grassy slopes, on top in a few minutes.alda30/10/2015
From road to north, wide views to east especially.neimcv25/09/2015
P track SW of hill. Near buildings over wooden fence steeply up.chrisbien24/05/2015
From B818 to the N. Excellent parking for Carron Glen, under pylons. Field track 200m W leads back to pylons. Follow line to next gate. Through another field (cows today). Over wall/fence to mast infested summit. Great views above fog.Minto28/09/2013
Easy from minor road to north.agentmancuso20/03/2007
