Parked just before locked gate at 673189. Followed forest track to 661172 then cut across heather and ancient felled area before picking up a zig zag path to the summit. Great views from the summit. Cut straight down on return to avoid the tiresome zig zags. Solo in 2 hours.bolton20/02/2020
From layby through rough track to Littlewood good track all the way, came down over Black Hill, planned Manabattock but light was fading, lovely weather, great views to Tap o Noth & BennachiePDuncan8220/01/2020
From Dubston, circuit of Lord Arthur's Hill, Edinbanchory Hill, Brux Hill and Clova Hill. Great views and easy walking on mostly good tracks. Had intended to include Manabattack Hill but track branching off at 545201 not apparent on ground and fenced off.rjf3502/01/2020
We parked at the entrance to Dubston and set off on a counter clockwise circuit of the Correen Hills. The path to Clova Hill is delightful, passing an old quarry en route, and only leaving the path for the last couple of hundred metres to the trig. A grassy path continues around Badingair Hill then SW on to Brux Hill and Edinbanchory Hill before a sharp turn eastwards up to Lord Arthur's Hill. An ATV track leads to Black Hill then a short section over heather joins another track to a brand new deer and rabbit fence skirting Manabattock. Fortunately there is a gate at the end of this track, allowing access over heather and through open woodland to a small stone summit cairn. Made it back to Dubston by following the deer fence northwards. About 3.5 hrs to do the whole circuit.summitter13/10/2019
From good grass parking at Dubston, NJ548200. Around back of the property, along level lane then up Fouchie Shank, direct to top - a nice, energy efficient route, no meanderings, no wastefull downs and ups.Isbjorn25/05/2019
From Lodge to south, spot height 178. Parked on verge with permission - do not drive up excellent tarmac road thru' wood north - private road. Lovely walk up on mapped tracks.

Here for the trgipoint. TP:UK log: Ascent from parking spot on A944 via a rough track to Littlewood Park then up a steep estate track only shown on 1:25k and back via the other track shown on the 1:50k. Robbie ran after a deer on the first rough track and then a few sheep way off in the distance on the estate track giving Mr TJR more than enough exercise chasing after him for one day!thejackrustles08/09/2018

An excellent walk from Terpesie, on the track starting at Dubston, heading up Fouchie Shank and leading all the way to the top. Stunning in the sun, with the heather coming into bloom, incredible views all round. Bilberries, raspberries and cherries provided refreshment.Gill22/07/2018

Parked on busy A944 in a layby. In full rain gear. On road for 800m through gate house to estate and up to the House around the back on bridal track away from buildings on contour to a delightful green track in a groove on the hillside. An absolute gem. To junction of tracks and followed in a wide arc to a group of trees just before brow of hill. Beeline for top over deep heather. Trig 7120 on its own with windbreak 100m away. 11.30. Tremendous view over the Don.arranc19/06/2004
