It might be possible to drive up the logging road to 592639-ish and turn right up a track to 598639-ish to park. Grid refs estimated assuming that the latter follows the old fire break. This possibility seems OK with the logging truck drivers provided that full use is made of the passing places to let them through without stopping, which gets a thumbs up. At the turning area, follow an old ATV track S up the stream to a strange wooden structure, then deer tracks up the fire break, which veers left (E) across the stream then heads NE almost to the summit, visible as a straight, broad grassy line between the felled areas. Summit brash is rotting down nicely. Route is OK in summer, two very short pushes through bracken and the deer tracks make light work of long grass. Much less bracken than the usual route.Gill20/08/2019
6/8 A round of the valley from Laghead Bridge, including Benfadyeon, Bengray, down to Loch and up to Craigtype, then Fell of Laghead, Craig of Grobdale and continue up to White Top of Culreoch. Then down through the trees to Doon of Culreoch and back to complete circle via Castramont Hill. Note the last two were hard going with felled woodland at first and then tussocky ground, made it a 6 hour round despite the low hills. Sunburnt, silly me!nickywood113/07/2019
Misty. Mist cleared whilst standing at summit. 75 min round trip after parking on Laurieston RoadLongwojo01/06/2019
No restrictions to drive on good graded track to parking area at NX602624. Followed fence line up. Forest was felled some years ago. Cleared of pine brashings on side of hill but full of it on the top side making access to the highest point a little awkward. Operated short wave radio from summit for SOTA.G4OBK (Phil)21/02/2019
Short addition after Colt Hills early finish. From SE, possible to drive half km along good track to below Crag of Grobdale short of daylight so took it. Up steep grassy slope before following ATV track to just below the summit, shorn of trees.N.Morters08/12/2018
8th top of 9, 1st a reascent of Craiglowrie with Adrian then Cairn Tammock and Rig of Burnfoot and Auchencloy solo, remaining tumps with Adrian:Laughenghie and Doon of Culreoch then a 3 tump circular starting with Ewe Hill onwards Via a grassy track then a drop to a fence and final climb with fallen tree at summit but not obscuring Cairn. Darkness has descended so head torch on. Continuing to Craig of Grobdale...Dazingdale17/10/2018

From the forestry road to the south, faint but comfortable track up east side of burn. Higher up a barbed fence crossing leads into the felled first around the summit, from which thankfully most of the debris was removed.Topographer5714/10/2018
After Craig of Grobdale, a revisit and much easier than previously, when I struggled through thick conifers to locate that cairnColin Crawford30/08/2018

8 Tumps anticlockwise from Laghead Bridge. Easy from Ewe Hill.agentmancuso21/04/2018
Quad track across moor from craig of grobdale. Area has been felled. Small cairn at summit.cjo25/03/2018
Revisit, 8 tump circuit, a view of this morning's Ardwall Isle, then to Ewe.RHW24/03/2018
After Storm Brian, still windy - cycled up from Gatehouse then faint ATV track to near summit. Returned over Craig of Grobdale to my bike, then cycled down the hill to climb Bengray.NormanW22/10/2017
Parked on road near forest track .Took that track until over small stream before crossing fence to pick up ATV tracks around SW flanks of Craig of Grobdale. Unfortunately wasn't so carefully crossing second barbed wire fence and put 3 inch cut in my knee. Still trousers were left unmarked so not all bad. After that summit easily attained and descent uneventful.garyhoney30/07/2017
Delightful little climb up ATV track by burn from forest road. 2 barbed wire fences easily negotiated. Easy to find small summit cairn by fallen tree.AndrewFinnimore26/04/2017
Might have been better off following the forestry track to the bottom of the forestry rather than contouring round over overgrown terrain.Owen B05/11/2016
Started at 611622. Walked west along the stone road to a gap in the wall on the right blocked by a sheet of wrinkly tin. Stepped over this and ascended NW on the flanks of Craig of Grobdale to summit. One barbed wire fence to cross. Good views of the rain heading our way from the top.mindlessflogger04/11/2016
From end of forest track to SE. ATV track up E side of burn gave good going (after a fight through bracken at the bottom!), but with a new-looking barbed wire fence to cross to access summit. Route and write-up at:
Tough going up side of felled forest from south - old track with forest debris and tussocks.carole engel26/08/2016
Walked the logging track until due S of summit - straight up through unfelled trees and bracken to summit - on descent found the ATV track to the E of the burn.Chris Peart20/07/2016
Parked down the forest road from 611622. Walked up the west side of the burn from 602624 which is hard going. There is a quad track on the east side of the burn from close to the summit which is easy going and descends a good way SE. 2 and a half miles with Marli.bolton03/07/2016
#587 - As others, keep to the East of the stream until the col, (faint track higher up), that will avoid the windthrow on the end of the un-felled bit!tim74703/06/2016
4th of 4 Marilyns done today. Parked just off the road at NX 611 623. Went along track for 0.5 km then headed up grassy ramp to gain the upper hillside then took a line heading for the summit over rough terrain. Forest area marked on my map had been felled and readily found the small cairn on the summit next to the fallen tree. Lovely fine sunny afternoon. Done solo whilst Seumas was at his grandparents.assynt_bob20/04/2016
From new logging road (old track upgraded) Dry, mild, sharp breeze, good views.iangalbraith08/04/2016

Easy walk from east and up wall to summit which is still clear of trees. ATV track easier to follow down than up.chriswatson28/04/2015

From Laurieston-Gatehouse moor road, at forest access road (felling currently under way).neimcv19/06/2013
W Jenx, parked down logging road nr to gate. Top forest all gone, used faint ATV track to gain top slopes. Summit tree now blown over, a sad scene. Great all round views.nordicstar20/07/2012
Parked at track/road junction 611 622, walked along track then nightmare poor route choice up chest deep ferns and chunky thistles towards summit. On descent found reasonable ATV track which runs from near summit to gate on S side of burn at 603 624.mattmcv16/07/2011
Via logging road on sunny late afternoon. Summit cairn beside stunted tree but rest of trees near summit have recently been felled.Dugswell211/03/2010
From SE where forestry logging track leaves road. Followed track to forest, then RH edge of forest until as close as possible to summit. Then had to search out the small snowy cairn in the trees.Aye Jimmy04/02/2009

Up alongside forest from track and road junction the attack trees and felled logs.Eddie08/02/2003
Hill covered in forest. Used Marhofn hints to top, ducking and diving over fallen trees, etc. 11.10. Small pile of stones with lump of quartz in the middle. No view - trees.arranc13/11/2001
