|I can pip you Chris, with a triple completion - the Topo Region and Lochar/ Annan catchments. I used a bike to reach Bankhead (no parking spots at all on the narrow road) then had an easy walk up through cattle pasture. Wide views, an obvious site for a beacon.||Colin Crawford||21/10/2019|
|A double completion - topo P05 and catchment Lochar. P by Pierbanks Bridge. Followed track to Barluith before cutting through wood and onto the summit. A biting wind.||chrisbien||31/03/2018|
|A fine view point.||Dave Geere||20/12/2017|
|Walked up from the nearest public road approach (NE) - passing a sign with just the word 'Danger' - with no explanation (I suspect its is to do with gas pipeline nearby). An interesting crinkly hill - lots of exposed geology, possibly some pre-historical use - fortification or mine workings. Saw my second Easter Bunny (A surprised hare). Forest plantation to the west means this is no longer an ideal site for a beacon fire. There are only two Scottish beacon hills in the 'bagging' list - and just 10 miles or so apart. Border country.||M3WDD||25/03/2016|
