|From the west along track on north side of clearing under pylons. HP appears to be under or just east of a pylon at 96175 95652 but I agree that ground further south east may be higher. More LiDAR data from the Scottish Government would help solve this one.||Topographer57||31/10/2019|
|From W under the pylons. There is a faint track on N edge of pylons wood. Alternative summit to SE definitely feels highest of the three.||Thearlaichdubh||21/10/2019|
|Visited both possible summit areas. Highest GPS reading was somewhere under line of pylons.||russell61||24/02/2019|
|Parked at track entrance to the west, visited 3 possible high points below pylons, in woods and outside woods further NE.||robertphillips||28/02/2017|
|Through Aberdeen and Back Woods. Visited both contours but no idea of actual summit.||chrisbien||06/09/2015|
|From WSW, also visited the alternative summit location to SE. On way back noticed the scrubby woodland immediately NE of farm is obviously higher than the pasture to its N (although at S edge of 125 contour and looks lower on map), and likely the summit. Bagged, whatever.||RHW||25/04/2015|
|Parked at the pylons but walked up the field to the highest point. It is marked by a water board access manhole. WARNING- Bulls, Geese and Sheep around the farm.||Play2End||19/02/2015|
|Choice of several parking spots on road to W. Field or forest walk E, then approach summit from N. Visible from farmhouse.||Minto||28/09/2014|
