Saw no one all day, hard to believe the green/blue fence posts are part of way marked path. Tough goingcjo13/07/2019
Parked at Castle, biked to Braidlie farm and onto Braidliehope ruin. Competent bikers could reach top of Queen's Mire. Warm and sunny.iangalbraith07/07/2019
From end of forestry track above Billhope straight up Tudhope Hill then on to Millstone Edge. Out and back to Wether Law before the rough passage to Cauldcleuch Head (no ATV tracks). Came down to Stob Fell then followed markers to Bught Shank with a pleasant enough road walk to finish.SS31/03/2019
Tudhope Hill, Millstone Edge, Caulcleuch Hill, back to Tudhope Hill, steeply down and up Carlin Tooth, Ellson Fell -both tops - then walk out down pathless Glen to Mosspaul and bus to Langholm. Great day. Empty country which deserves exploringtrimarc226/03/2019
With J on a rugby/walking weekend. Parked just S of bridge near Billhope where there is room for a few cars to park off the minor road. Started overcast & chilly. Followed the track up the Billhope Burn & then took first branch up side of trees which briefly doubles back & goes through an old gateway. After that straight up E on to Pennygant Hill on springy moss. Picked up ATV tracks marked by posts which don't stick completely to crest but make the going much easier to the summit. By now the back end of the weather system stretching right across the sky was approaching on a gentle breeze. The sun suddenly came out & the hills took on a totally different look. Magic. Retraced steps to Blackgrain Side where a different set of posts marking a path leading steeply down W to the end of the outbound track. OS maps are way out of date around here with a lot more forestry. The display board located about 1km from the start next to the track showing the paths marked by the posts is usefulNotReallyABagger14/10/2018

From Priesthaugh up Holywell Rig. Eileenís final Graham. Onto Skelfhill Pike with Kenny.N.Morters25/08/2018
Parked in wide entrance to forest track at 439978 & up Tudhope Hill & Millstone Edge. From Millstone Edge, ATV track (sometimes faint or non-existent) on right side of fence follows fence line to summit. Descended S. alongside fence to Muckle Land Knowe & then followed ATV track with marker posts over Pennygant Hill to Stob Fell - ATV track with marker posts down W. ridge to track & then up road to car.

From Billhope. As wet and tedious as everColin Crawford21/02/2018
Solo. Parked at Hermitage Castle. Along road and up track to Braidliehope (dilapidated house) and sheepfold beyond. Rather rough track continues further, going a little to the east of the summit of Winterlair Hill. Up rough ground to Windy Swire (col between Cauldcleuch Head and Greatmoor Hill) and up Windy Edge to Summit of Cauldcleuch Head. Final bit a bit miry. Descended to sheepfold at NY465999 where I found and followed a path that joins the track on Winterlair Hill. A few drops of drizzle early on and then nice and sunny.pwbellarby07/10/2017

A slog to get here from the Marilyn. Glad it was clear as navigation could be a problem. Tedious plateaux.Play2End25/07/2017
From car (9:35)at Braidlie entrance, followed valley to Braidliehope ruin, then up grassy track behind over Queen's Mire. Best to follow this to col then up ridge; attempt to cut corner much rougher. Boggy on plateau. Followed path along ridge to Greatmoor Hill. Good views, some wind. Cont down S ridge to 1st top of Hermitage Hill then down W of woodland. Had to vault fence to avoid inquisitive cows. Finally track to Old Braidlie and back to car (1:30). Hot mainly sunny day.dbb17/06/2017
Solo from nr. Billhope, over Tudhope Hill, Millstone Edge amd Langtae Hill to CH. Fine sunny day with a little SW wind up high.

From old Quarry on Carewood Rigg via Billhope Burn then steeply up Pennygant Hill. Muddy misty pretty miserable. On a backpack.mick20/10/2016
Just followed fence from Greatmoor. Could see nothing so far. Sun trying to break through. Got to top and then retraced steps back to Greatmoor. As leaving Greatmoor, sun came out to reward me with some views. Would have been good if this had happened earlier. So decided to do Ellson Fell another marilyn and sun bathe.

A heart shaped route from bridge at Braidlie Farm. Greatmoor Hill > Windy Edge > Cauldcleuch Head > Muckle Land Knowe then back to the easily crossed ford.G4OBK (Phil)24/02/2016
From forest entrance over Tudhope Hill & Millstone Edge to CH. Superb weather. Last day of four weeks in Southern Scotland in the last two months. Only two Donald's left to do.ngthack26/10/2015
Approached from Priesthaugh, north side. 3 hours up and down. 'Interrupted' views.Roblex24/10/2014
On own. Parked in forest entrance at NY439,977 then Tudhope Hill, very boggy return trip to Millstone Edge and Cauldcleuch Head, then Bye Hill, Carlin Tooth, Ellson Fell and Ellson Fell West top. Lovely day with great views - would have been perfect if drier underfoot.Crib Goch07/10/2014

A drab tramp from Priesthaugh on a wet windy day through much very long wet grass. Found on descent better to stick with fence until turn east and then walk inside forest boundary fence - but still not a walk I would recommenddickscroop04/07/2014

Parked south of burn at approx NY477966. From the semi-ruin at Braidiehope, when up Crib Burn, however this was very soggy under foot. Looks like a fence post was the highest point, went due east to Greatmoor Hill.Jhimmy14/04/2006
Caldcleuch head and Greatmoor Hill with Rich and Denisevegibagger27/11/2005
From Priesthaugh. In a hurry en route from EK to Sunderland, missed the intended firebreak and got lost in the trees, so had to abandon the plan to visit Greatmoor Hill, and just headed down ridge over Skelfhill Fell instead.agentmancuso18/07/2005
