No parking now at either Craigengillan or start of track to Moorbrock Farm, so parked off-road over 1km to the south. Took the track up past Craigengillan and Moorbrock Farm (gates in deer fences). Then track round Green Hill and NE to flat summit plateau. Solo. Continued to Dugland.Man of Kernow128/06/2019
Came across from Keoch Rig past site exploration for new wind turbines. Followed an ATV track across the top, and then dropped more steeply to meet the track at the Poltie Burn. Very tussocky ground in places, and would be worse in summer. Followed the good and fairly new looking track out over the bridge at the Polifferie Burn,and through the forest to the road. This track was better than our inward route past Craigengillan. A lovely day and good walk around Beninner, Keoch Rig and Moorbrock Hill.LizH10/04/2019
Parked in wide entrance to forest track at 641953 - Along road to Craigengillan & up track to junction at 613976 - Turned right & up stone track & then ATV track to unmarked summit. Continued to Keoch Rig & Dugland. (S)gerrybowes27/02/2019
Solo from P nr. Craigengillan up track past Moorbrock House and around Green Hill to junction at 613976, turning R steeply up to summit of MH. Continued N to drop on atv track to col with Keoch Rig. Weather was v cold at start then sun came out although with a brezzy E wind. First visit was, also solo, on 22/07/2015, coming from Beninner over Keoch Rig.jacobus29/10/2018
From Craigengillan, tracks on map can be confusing after recent felling makes last part near Tup Knowe less obvious. Once solved it joins the smooth almost road to Moorbrock. Low mist/cloudsN.Morters20/10/2018
Loop from Craigengillan (layby as no parking signs at cottage now) up past new builds at Moorbrock and track to summit. Down and up to mast on Keoch Rig then up to fence and along ridge to Mid Hill of Glenhead. Came down past obvious shooting tower to track.SS29/09/2018

Heatwave. Started at Craigengillan / Water of Ken and climbed the east side of Beninner, Cairnsmore, crossed to Keoch Rig and Moorbrock and then down via Moorbrock Estate house. The climb over tussocky grass going up Keoch Rig was torturous. SMC guide route.Roblex26/05/2017

Parked at cattle grid 2 miles into Long road. 1/2 mile to Craigengillan, up track to Moorbrock Farm. Wheatear. Bulldozed track uphill into mist to its end at 2000'. To top at 12.25. 6 small stones could be a cairnlet on this large tussocky expanse. To N top.arranc02/04/2008
With Martin66 & JC. His estimated date is way out! From minor road near Craigengillan, took track up side of forest to Moorbrock. Left hand fork led up towards Green Hill. The track goes round this hill & then high on to Moorbrock Hill itself, but my brother of course fancied the direttissima. So followed the burn directly up the tussocky slope admiring the drop over Moorbrock Gairy to the summit. Wandered over to Green Hill & then dropped back to the track to join the route of ascent.NotReallyABagger05/02/2006
