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.Thearlaichdubh10/09/2019
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.summitter31/08/2019
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 Down125/06/2018
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.Topographer5702/12/2017
From the cp track then up through trees.robertphillips28/02/2017
Done after Commonedge Hill. A wee bit difficult!Play2End04/08/2016
From CP S of Gloom Hill - up road-round back of cottage-path to forest track-then as Minto.chrisbien13/09/2015
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.Minto05/04/2015
