Made it to Play2End's bus stop, but no further. An impenetrabley high security fence surrounds the compound. Not sure how RHW managed it, unless he got special permission to enter via the security gate.summitter03/01/2020
HP a short level ridge just outside tree belt, deep grass, some light thorn encroaching, Lidar GR10 about right. Edinburgh recompletedRHW24/12/2019
Until informed otherwise the highest accessible point I could get to was the bus shelter on the south side of the A90, just off Standingstane Road. Not as high as the visible top but higher than all adjacent ground. Tick.Play2End04/12/2019
walked around rim of highpoint many times,worked on these steep grass areas when they were being grass seeded approx 20 years ago.robertphillipsblank
Info only - from Wiki: To the south of the A90 is the Dalmeny Tank Farm, a large oil-storage facility operated by BP. The facility was constructed in the 1970s on a former oil shale mine, and is screened by a mound of the waste material from the mine. Oil is transferred from the site to tankers moored at the Hound Point Terminal in the Firth of Forth. Google Street View appears to show @ 8ft fence set back a bit from Standingstane Road to the West with an equally substantial high gate to access the sheep field at the NW foot of the hill.Chris Pearsonblank
