A lovely walk from the gate and track at 499 137 to the south - the final section being via a narrow path through a larch wood.summitter05/01/2020
From Cushnie Forest car park, 1/3 with Langgadlie Hill & Loanend HillPDuncan8205/12/2019
Parked beside shipping container near Upper Minmore, NJ501136. Up road to track start at NJ498137. Parking and route OK'd by shepherd. Track becomes faint in grass on ridge and leads to two 'gates' just before forest edge - sun bleached simple stile over fence, R, leads to vague path in young trees - stick with it, it soon joins a forest 'green lane', which leads through young plantation, then over open moor to top cluster of trees. You can take thin path through trees, or use ATV track which goes around on W side, to top. In reverse, the forest 'green lane' heads slightly L to join a new forest access road and a link down to a solitary wind turbine - a new granite stone track heads down from the turbine back to the shipping container.Isbjorn25/05/2019
From verge P at NJ498137. A very pleasant route with superb views to a somewhat prosaic summit.summitsup12/05/2019

Lovely walk from gate and track at NJ 499 137 to south. Track leads to woods - rickety gate and feint path to good track thru' wood NJ 5048 1431. At NJ 5055 1590, amazing well-defined path thru' wood direct to topcarole engel26/10/2018

Parked on bend by wood to west of Upper Minmore. Path all the way but deepish snow from entering first wood. Zig zag through fallen trees in second wood to summit with good views. Back same way.Coinneach20/03/2018
Parked at the start of the track at 499137. A late afternoon walk taking 90 minutes. The forest walk close to the summit is very pleasant. Solo.bolton22/02/2018
From Upper Minmore. Lovely hill. 4th of 5 today: Tap o'Noth, The Buck, Lord Arthur's Hill, Coiliochbhar Hill, Pressendye.PGCE21/02/2018
Third hill today. A strange route from Mill of Brux, where there is a parking space. There's a signposted footpath, looks promising until it runs out into a boggy hollow completely blocked with broom. Fortunately, the barbed wire can be crossed easily into the adjacent field, and the route can be followed OK. The track on the other side of Craigie is blocked by a massive padlocked deer gate topped with barbed wire. So much for right to roam. But just follow the fence, and pick up the track leading easily to the top. Probably easier taking my descent route to the track at Newton.Gill07/09/2017

Parked near Upper Minmore and up track to summit.AndrewFinnimore12/09/2014
parked at road junction at 490185 and followed the track towards Ferneybrae. Then bravely kept on track till it reached the ridge line at which there was an easy 4wd track along the crest to the summit which gave me a good view of Lord Arthur's Hill which I had just climbed.Thearlaichdubh08/05/2014
Parked at the oversized entrance area of Tulloch at NJ524172 and walked back west along A944, then across bridge and along track to Bithnie. Crossed fields and found break in fence to climb up along wood fringe next to small stream. Steep and tough going, not recommended. There are better routes easily found on the internet. Summit is a pleasant small cairn near a wood.sotabagger15/03/2013
Along track from south. Wood near summit well worth a visit. Hill threatened by the wind farmers - incredible.fasgadh22/11/2012
