Used new track then ATV tracks to summit. Best to start on the track opposite Cacrabank farm. Through gate, then left, soon right onto ATV track. Nice simple hill, and a lovely sunrise this morning.PGCE27/02/2020
Parked just off road at 312168 and got through the new forestry fence at a gate 3123316849. Then an easy but steep climb to the top. 40 mins up and downSimon Winton06/02/2020
From B711 at NT318163. Went up the nice track on the S bank of March Sike far enough to ascertain that the very secure deer fence goes round the back of the summit so returned and walked up the very new, still ugly forest track (no trees yet) to access pasture tops to the HP. There is a TuMP bagging bulldozer here, tracks across the still grassy HP. There's a stile across the fence at its top (NT324173) top so you should be able to access Stand Knowe from the HP, though we went back down the forest track. With Pete. A rather unsatisfactory day as we tried to go up Ward Law via a path shown on the N side of Thirlstane Burn, overgrown but ok at NT281154- later so close to impassable that we decided to give up on Ward Law hill today.pwheeler21/09/2019

parked at cattle grid at cacrabank through gate up steep slope to the top. nice views all round.robertphillips21/02/2015
there is limited parking, about five hundred metres from the bridge, for a couple of cars (watch the farmers gate). I accessed the hill from the track at Gd: 305174 there is a new looking bungalow that is not marked on the map, the public footpath goes to the left. The owners of the bungalow do not seem to welcome walkers so make sure you don't wander accidentally onto their driveway (it is not obvious where the path goes until you are on top of it). despite the sullen owners of the bungalow who growled at my cheery wave I had a great short walk. it is a cracking little hill and i was lucky to be blessed with nice weather. The views were extensive.thenomad06/09/2014
