|From Castlelaw carpark.||Chris Peart||22/06/2018|
|From Caerketton followed path westward down steep path into Windy Door Nick then back up well defined path to summit. Very warm sunny day but distant haze reduced helpfulness of viewpoint indicator. Descended by path heading slightly left of path for ascent. A bit further along detoured over the grassy bump of Muilepuile then down on to well defined track to join path to Swanson where it crosses the burn. Down past golf course to walkers’ car park.||Jubilado||27/04/2018|
