From Balmossie as others and plunge into gorse bush on summit ridge. Lovely views. With cousin Mary.Thearlaichdubh12/11/2019
No bulls, cows or calves. Gate at top of Balmossie Gdns open so easy (apart from the summit gorse!) circuit, returning via lower well used path adjacent to ploughed field.Tony S19/03/2019
From reservoir access road. Four roe deer in the ploughed field to the left. Fences easily negotiated, and even the gorsy summit section is very brief.Nick Down122/02/2019
From Balmossie Gardensjimbloomer23/10/2018
Saw bulls sign in Balmossie Gardens and there were cows in distance but found track lower down which took me across field edge below top and reached water board track that way. Strangely that means Dundee completion - first in Scotland.Mark Sims11/07/2018
From A92, up track, round edge of field and over double bwf. Then short walk up pasture to gorse covered top.Campbell Singer23/06/2018
From A92 up track along fence over double BW to gorse covered top.PeterD29/05/2018

Park off A92 track to compound, around fence, then dive into gorse on quarry rim, final dundee tump.robertphillips05/03/2017
As with others, along access track from south, then along edge of field to gap in barbed wire and up to top. Nice evening light over the Tay.oriolefan10131/07/2016
From sse via resr access track. Half hearted search also for trig block which should be on brink immediately n of comms mast, a few m w of highpointRHW12/12/2015
Wide views of the Tay estuary for such a modest hill.neimcv09/10/2015
With Inez Murrieclashcityrocker08/10/2015
Did nor really believe the bull warning, but nevertheless walked up the track to the reservoir: along field edge to SW corner and easy fence up to summit. There was a van at the mast, so presume could easilly have come up a track from the bull gate.GordonAdshead05/08/2015
Parked by the green gate accessed from the eastbound carriageway of A92. Up reservoir track around fence then double barbed wire to negociate before you can explore the vegetated quarry edge summit.Dugswell223/07/2015
P at green gate - up res track. Left along res fence. Horse jump through barbed wire fence. Top as Minto.chrisbien18/04/2015
From eastbound carriageway of A92, parking space at green gate, walked up to reservoir enclosure, turned right through missing strand in barbed fence and around north perimeter of reservoir to mast. HP lies in on steep and narrow gorse bank between mast and quarry, be careful.Topographer5725/03/2015
I was not put off by the sign of bull and calves. Walked to the quarry and took the field route to the right. Cold and foggy, no view at the mast.Play2End13/02/2015
A surprising first log. Probably could be climbed from Balmossie Gardens, but I was put off by the sign warming of bulls, cattle and young stock. The track leads into a quarry (farmers rubbish dump!), and might not be that convenient for the top. Started 500m E, up water board track. Top has not one but TWO compounds, both with very high and well maintained fences. Fortunately (and unusally) neither compound is situated on the summit. However, the high point is well guarded by a wobbly field fence, hawthorn tree, and gorse ! I reckoned the highest point was behind the hawthorn bush. Though the true summit may have been quarried away long ago.Minto28/12/2014
