|Parking at the end of road to Little Glenshee. Best not follow the track north but walk up the road west to avoid the deer fence, especially if you have a dog. Then head north to the top.
Look out for blackcock, I saw at least 20, what a sight.||Simon Winton||04/01/2020|
|Creag na Criche from the ford-side car park then we continued northwards up the track to Moine Folaich and then (although not on my map) westwards to almost the top of Creag Liath. Returned via Glen Shee. Nice pre-Crimbo circular walk.||summitter||22/12/2019|
|Signs prohibiting parking at start of track, NN987340, but good parking on S side of ford, with footbridge over, NN988339. On good tracks to about NN985353, then straight up - the wet moss beneath the heather was extremely slippery.||Isbjorn||05/06/2019|
|Parked in car park by the Ford. Climbed stile and followed track all the way to second stile then grassier track up hil and round the back before last 100m throughheather to the top. A lovely wee hill.||the pigguy||06/10/2018|
|From Little Glenshee CP. With Sam.||ChrisR||02/05/2018|
|From car park next to Shochie Burn. Followed the track until the gradient begins to level out; then climbed over the fence at a rare strainer post and then climbed up steep ground with deep heather to the summit. Returned via a similar route, but short-cut the zig zag in the track on grassy ground remaining adjacent to the fence (this is probably a better ascent route)||raffemeister||26/04/2018|
|Great spot for campervan at carpark next to ford. Took direct line up from the track, didn't see second stile but found handy holes cut in deer fence making it easy to climb over. Some nasty thick heather below the summit, otherwise a pure delight.||AndrewFinnimore||01/12/2017|
|A lovely walk in the sun, clear, cold, wonderful views. Followed my nose up the track and an ATV track after the second stile. This leads easily through the various knolly tops, up close to the top, though overshot a bit (maybe I should get a GPS). A more direct descent.||Gill||10/11/2017|
|Parked in the small carpark by the ford as previously mentioned and used the footpath over the bridge thus avoiding walking through the quite high water over the ford. I was pleased that there was a dog friendly stile as I had wondered if I was going to have to carry the dog over in my arms which may have been a challenge. Just followed the track initially before cutting out a loop by sticking by the fence, at the second stile there is a path to the top before the final heathery climb.
For such a small hill the viewpoint was really impressive.||Peterb||03/10/2017|
|Good parking at 987340. 2 high stiles over the deer fence make things easier. After the second a visible path on the left goes to within 100 metres of the summit. Solo. 80 minutes.||bolton||18/09/2017|
|Late afternoon walk from near Little Glenshee. Followed track over both metal styles and AV track round back and to within hundred meters of summit. Sunshine and Snow squalls||N.Morters||21/03/2017|
|Solo night jog/walk from Little Glenshee.||amswanston||05/01/2017|
|Parked before the ford in Little Glenshee then up track and over deer fence and direct route to summit on a cool morning.||Dugswell2||11/11/2016|
|From Little Glenshee. 2 new galvanized steel ladder styles to ease access over deer fencing.||jonglew||11/11/2016|
|Solo. Nice wander up path from NN 987 341. Good stiles in place over fences. It is worth keeping to the track until you have climbed the second stile. A path then leads up to the shooting butts and round towards the summit. Pleasant walk in the sun.||assynt_bob||30/05/2016|
|A credit to small Marilyns. Parking for about 5 cars by the ford. Then no need to climb the deer fence: up the big stony track to the stile at NN989351.||Pete R||09/04/2016|
|First hill of the year. Carpark over the weir was after deliberation ignored. Too much water. Parked nr gate. Track took you to along a fence which has a stile higher up. Easy from there.||tallblond||23/01/2016|
