From 159,969. Cracking hill - great views over Loch Leven from summit.Crib Goch29/12/2019
Parked at foot of steps at 159969 then followed steps up to track then path through newish gate then on to top passing Seamark top with marked boulder/stone. Leisurely Sunday walk with decent views.willyross13/10/2019
From RSPB visitor centre up to viewpoint then across meadow and up path to just before gate (turn right at red arrow on rock). Path then follows fence to trig. Came back by the Sleeping Giant path which would have been a more direct ascent.SS05/10/2019
Parked at foot of steps at 159969 an followed steps up to track then path through newish gate then on to top via Seamark Stone. Beautiful day ..warm blue sky, tremendous views in all directions from a comparatively small hill.Jubilado16/05/2019
From Vane Farm RSPB VC, NT 159990. The connection between the Sleeping Giant Trail and the summit ridge path is distinctly indistinct - if you miss it, as I did, the heather depth is purgatorial - I stumbled upon the summit ridge path and followed it back to see what went wrong, so, here goes - you have to pass right through and out the other side of the VC courtyard to find the start of the SGT. Follow the engineered path uphill - after passing under the power lines you come upon a large information board with a 'map diagram' with a 'you are here' legend on its very R edge with no directional information for when after you've stepped off the RH edge of the mapped world. The path continues around the perimeter of a grassy field to a high point with a gate and a descending forest road ahead. Turn R just before the gate up a thin soil path which leads into a messy felled area - the crux is to spot, here, amongst the mess, the unsigned thin path going counter-intuitively downhill, R, in tIsbjorn21/03/2019
GHC walk. A lovely mild and sunny day. Great views.Play2End28/12/2018

Normal route up and came down the Mountain Bike Trail by mistake, pretty steep but more direct. Brilliant views all around from this wee hill, recommended.Chris Mac06/10/2018
From RSPB CP with Rosie. Followed sleeping giant path. Need to turn right off path and go up hill before getting to final gate. Follow path that keeps close to wall. I missed turn and spent 15minutes tramping through heather.Longwojo08/06/2018

From Vane Farm RSPB CP.summitsup26/09/2017
A cracking little ridge walk, with views over Loch Leven and the Lomond Hills. Evening sun and a double rainbow over Bishop's Hill for company. Vane Farm - woodland track to viewpoint - faint path to ridge west of Scots pines - ridge path to Benarty Hill summit and onto Mulla Craig - descent by a devious path zig-zagging down to West Brackley farm - back along the road.Nick Down116/09/2017
Last hill of the day, after tea and cake in the Loch Leven Larder (recommended). Up the Forestry path on the south side (steps) from the small car park just past the minor road called Ladath Stripe. Good paths lead up, then MTB tracks through an area being felled, to a clear path across the moor to the Trig and a fine view of Loch Leven and the Lomond Hills. Good views in all other directions also. Splendid little hill.Gill11/09/2017
From RSPB car park (14:00) followed Sleeping Giant path to high point, then up faint path to top of bluff and good path to summit therefrom. Sunny, great views of Loch Leven. Back same route; finish 15:30dbb03/08/2017

Xmas walk with GHC. Very windy. Murk!Play2End30/12/2016
With Steve and Gordon from Loch Ore. 3hr circuit via Harran Hill.Play2End01/12/2016
Walked up through the wood to the south. Sheltered and warm in the trees but a bit windier out in the open but still decent weather for the time of year. A hill I've seen from the motorway for many years.Walker Dan01/11/2016
From rspb car park with mora.BLACKHILL22/10/2016
Afternoon hill after earlier in the day up Bishop Hill. Parked at National Nature reserve/RSPB centre. Paths up through the wood. A new smooth cinder path take you high, I detoured to the viewpoint (nice but mistake as Heath tough to get back to path). Where cinder track reaches a high point it takes a sharp left turn, with a wall heading up a steep rocky bluff topped with pines. A faint path out flanks the rock to the left (no point following cinder path further as it ends in the wood). Top out the short bluff and regain the path alongside wall all the way to the top. Finish with coffee in the centre...always a good plan.N.Morters01/10/2016
From layby/carpark at NT159969 with CDA. Beautiful walk. Saw a Great Wood Wasp (...heard then saw).Danmawr14/08/2016
A good but steep path leads from 159970. Under 50 minutes for the return solo walk. Great views over Loch Leven.bolton10/05/2016

6190 in 14 years for RW, 300 ish in 4 ish for the TJRs, might take a few more than 14 for us to complete them! Enjoyed the walk to this, picked up a few geocaches on the way and then met up with Rob and friends for our first Marilyn chant, congratulations Rob a fantastic achievement.thejackrustles16/04/2016
Decent circuit of Benarty Hill and Mulla Crag-incoporating part of the WH walk. Fortunately stayed clear of MOD firing range to west of hill. Nice day. Walked with Rik (Bailey). Walk included Castle Crag and Mulla Crag(TUMP).captainslow09/04/2016
