From NT 093971, limited parking in long passing place. W then S along forest roads to signpost at NT 083963, then NW up omitted planting row in trees(thank you original foresters) and onto open grassy fell to top.Isbjorn21/03/2019
A sign posted route through the forest from the road to the NE. Reached the top as the first snows of winter floated down.summitter27/10/2018
1of4: From minor road near Cleish at 093971ChrisR24/10/2018
As bolton, signpost mentioned is at NT 08294 96319. Then back via The Inneans, which is good value.Pete R02/06/2018
With U3A Adventure Walking Group from Blairadam Forest car park via Nivingston Crags and Dummiefarline and back along N of Black Loch and Loch Glow. Faultless cold sunny day though slightly hazy.dbb17/01/2018
A Boxing Day circuit of the Cleish Hills from Outh Bridge in snow and sunshine. Even so, I plunged through the snow into the marshy depths by the forestry often enough to demonstrate that Scaur Hill and Wether Hill are really better kept for a separate short walk. Outh Hill (having walked North up the A823 and crossed the fence where wire gives way to planks by a stream) - Park Hill - Georgeton Hills - a hugely enjoyable ascent and descent of Dumglow by its snowy prow - the Slough of Des[pond to Scaur Hill - forest tracks and a clever path through the trees to the tussocky summit of Wether Hill - back by the forest track and A823.Nick Down126/12/2017
Followed N.Morters route, all nicely waymarked, and a decent path up the final firebreak, if a little dark and gloomy on the last section. Nice summit with good views, but not a 5* route overall, because it's mainly in rather ugly forestry.Gill09/11/2017
From the E via forestry tracks.Chris Peart26/10/2017
As bolton, signpost mentioned is at NT 68294 96319.Lionel Bidwell06/10/2017
From end of track to E (12:15) followed it and southern branch then signed path through woods to open country and top. Sunny, good views. Back same route; finish 13:35dbb03/08/2017
Parked at 093971 in the track entrance. A good route west then south where at the end of the forest road a signpost directs you through the ride to a distinct path to the summit. 65 minutes return in glorious weather. Solo.bolton04/06/2017
Weather fair.MountainMac22/04/2017
Parked at the end of the track to Loch Glow fisheries, could have parked in the car park but decided to walk. Took the muddy South path round the loch, then up towards Black Loch and then up a very steep track (following a fence line) up to the ridge line near the fort and then over to the trigpoint. Fantastic views in all directions. Took a track back towards the Loch to a new looking style and then down a path towards the trees which just stopped dead and then had to head back to the fenceline we came up. Nae easier on the way down! Took North track back around loch much less muddy.thejackrustles02/04/2017
From Nivingston Common, like most (e.g. N.Morters), starting near 226 m and using forest tracks and firebreak. Nice open top, traces of fort, and surprisingly good views- snow plastered Ochils were especially impressive. Rather churned up tracks in places, but passable.pwheeler23/03/2017
From forest tracks to the east. Parked at the forest walk mark on OS map before sharp bend. Follow track west, take the left turn track to its end. Signpost up the path along the firebreak out and onto the open hill close to summit. SnowN.Morters11/02/2017
Along tracks starting at road at NT093971, then followed fence line through wood from ca NT081968 to wood edge, then up steep slope to summit.kdbennett14/01/2017
Solo. Used track from the north along edge of field and then up through forest. Followed track as shown on OS 1:25,000 map, which branches off main track shortly before turning circle of main track not much evidence of a track on the ground. Went up Georgeton Hills first and then Dumglow. Beautiful day after the storms.pwbellarby27/12/2016
From minor road nt 093 972 with mora. Foerestry work - sone tracks impassable.BLACKHILL21/10/2016
Dumglow plus The Inneans (TUMP ) with Rik (Bailey). Path along loch was very wet, passed many quiet fishermen. Race meeting at Knockhill was evident.captainslow09/04/2016
At night.Stevend131/10/2015
Circular evening walk in wet conditions, with Robert W; fog clearing at summit.barnz4802/06/2015
Directions given by Nordicstar worked a treat. Took a shortcut down a break, rather than following track, on the way down. Route and write-up at: http://gayleybird.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/benarty-hill-and-dumglow-hill.htmlGayle26/05/2015

Jenx b'day! Parked by road (just) at boggy lane towards Dumglow, similar to Dugswell, GR NT069725. Climbed thro' woods to track end and 35m left, 35m South, 300m right to escape trees, getting tight! Then through snow to summit slopes and trig. Great views, very cold and snow showers.nordicstar10/03/2013

Surprisingly fine little hill. Ascended from track through the forest from the north.JohnW20/04/2011
Revisit. Grassy summit. Nice climb on a frosty morning. From ENE: follow forest road W; turn S at jct; in c.200m find old wall and follow W; at little old fallen gate fork L: overgrown firebreak gives access to grassy slopes. First checked Loch Glow access road - barrier locked (Monday a.m.).RHW28/02/2011

Used track through field starting at NT06939 97504. Then into Dumglow Woodland to follow track further uphill. Left for a while at end of track, then south, then right, then onto open hillside. Wet at times under foot on dry clear day.Dugswell207/09/2009
Approached from North, via "Waterfall" at NT072972 and descended via track at Windy Gate. Lovely clear spring evening and views included North berwick Law and Bass Rock, Tinto, Ochils and Mounth.paddyirish08/04/2009
From lane off road to NW, horrendous litter by gate. Higher up seemed to be more felled trees than suggested by map. Misty plod by fence ended with short steep pull up to summit trig and cairn.Aye Jimmy27/02/2009
Approached from east round the loch and back along the path through the woods that follows the fire break shown on the Explorer maps. Good views on bleak and windy day.andy26/12/2007
