|Easy ascent through the trees from the forestry track at 971008. Precise summit unclear, but it appears to be somewhere between the OS 442m spot height an unsightly and untidy campsite at the upper end of a clearing north of the spot.||TRG318||22/05/2020|
|Walked up from Dollar via the Hillfoot road and followed forest road nearly to the NE summit, then up the grain of the well spaced trees to various possible summits complicated by some windthrow. There is a camping settlement near the summit. In 2 years it will be bare when all the remaining trees have been felled. On to Law Hill.||Thearlaichdubh||10/09/2019|
|From the usual carpark and up the forest track (red route) until pretty much due north of the summit, where a 200m line through the closed canopy got me to the top pretty easily.||summitter||31/08/2019|
|From Castlehill CP via zigzag track across the flank of Auchlinsky Hill. The summit of Commonedge Hill is startling airy as the path leaves the trees, and the view to the shark's fin of North Berwick Law and across the Forth and Fife is outstanding. A track leads through a gate into the forestry at Hillfoot Hill. After playing forestry snakes and ladders - diverting around fallen trees and diving along clear avenues between tree rows - I came upon a strip of grass. At its upper end is the summit, occupied by a series of camouflage screens made from branches and brushwood and, inside them, a blue tarp shelter. An unexpected find.||Nick Down1||25/06/2018|
|From CW CP, tracks to NE of summit, then over from NE to SW down to track west of summit. Summit location impossible to pinpoint among fallen trees. Broken inversion cloud over Devon valley.||Topographer57||02/12/2017|
|From the cp track then up through trees.||robertphillips||28/02/2017|
|Done after Commonedge Hill. A wee bit difficult!||Play2End||04/08/2016|
|From CP S of Gloom Hill - up road-round back of cottage-path to forest track-then as Minto.||chrisbien||13/09/2015|
|From community woodlands car park on Hillfoots Rd. Path and track to col to NE. Then easily up through mature trees to flat summit area. Hard to tell exactly where summit is located.||Minto||05/04/2015|
|453m gps, mature spruce, flat summit, highpoint unclear.||RHW||25/06/2011|
