|Evening jaunt after work - first time bagging a tump for a while. Park at layby at approx. NS347 711, entered via South Craigmarloch Farm. By far easiest route from here is to jump fence on right, enter cowfield at 34678 71466 and follow beech hedge to gate. Follow grassy track after second gate. Faint trail to top, although took longer route over similar bumps on way there. Met two young guys (one dressed in full highlander gear) who had just discovered the place (I'd never been) - really didn't expect to see anyone!||iangpark||20/03/2020|
