On a wet morning, I was glad that others had resolved the summit location; I had no wish to plod over the multiple 80m contour rings in the poor conditionsColin Crawford20/06/2019

Asked at second last house if Icould Park for 30 minutes. Lady was happy to help. Then lady in farm was also helpful , letting me into field behindhouse. Gentle grassy walk. Up and down in 20 minutes.Campbell Singer11/06/2019
From the road end at Hamister, straight on past the farm through a wooden gate onto a track, sharp bend left to another gate and up the field along the drain and then the fence, which gives easy grassy going compared with the heather across the fence. Over the top fence at a wooden section and there’s the top, grassy, with views across the plateau to the other bumpy tops, all heathery and rough except for Setter Hill which is grassier and pointier. Rain started and then became torrential as we descended, jog back to the car.Gill26/08/2018
From end of the road at Hamister. the 2 other 80m ring contours to the NNE and SE looked lower; Setter Hill to the NW looked possibly higher. Drove round and nipped up it from the NW, GPS gave me an identical reading at 87m - a twin top tump?jonglew26/08/2018

Symbister circular. Setter Hill looked as though it may be higher (insufficient time to visit & assess).Smudge28/05/2013
