|No parking now at either Craigengillan or start of track to Moorbrock Farm, so parked off-road over 1km to the south. Took the track up past Craigengillan and Moorbrock Farm (gates in deer fences). Then track round Green Hill and NE to flat summit plateau. Solo. Continued to Dugland.||Man of Kernow1||28/06/2019|
|Came across from Keoch Rig past site exploration for new wind turbines. Followed an ATV track across the top, and then dropped more steeply to meet the track at the Poltie Burn. Very tussocky ground in places, and would be worse in summer. Followed the good and fairly new looking track out over the bridge at the Polifferie Burn,and through the forest to the road. This track was better than our inward route past Craigengillan. A lovely day and good walk around Beninner, Keoch Rig and Moorbrock Hill.||LizH||10/04/2019|

|From Craigengillan, tracks on map can be confusing after recent felling makes last part near Tup Knowe less obvious. Once solved it joins the smooth almost road to Moorbrock.

|Parked at cattle grid 2 miles into Long road. 1/2 mile to Craigengillan, up track to Moorbrock Farm. Wheatear. Bulldozed track uphill into mist to its end at 2000'. To top at 12.25. 6 small stones could be a cairnlet on this large tussocky expanse. To N top.||arranc||02/04/2008|
|With Martin66 & JC. His estimated date is way out! From minor road near Craigengillan, took track up side of forest to Moorbrock. Left hand fork led up towards Green Hill. The track goes round this hill & then high on to Moorbrock Hill itself, but my brother of course fancied the direttissima. So followed the burn directly up the tussocky slope admiring the drop over Moorbrock Gairy to the summit. Wandered over to Green Hill & then dropped back to the track to join the route of ascent.||NotReallyABagger||05/02/2006|
