In a wood. Followed the edge of the golf course out and in.Play2End17/03/2019
Layby parking opposire estate entrance. Walked past Dundas Loch then on an unmapped vehicle grass track towards the castle cutrain wall; veered off N steeply up through mature laurel. Spot height on N side of the wall looked lower than ground on S side.jonglew12/10/2018
Dalmeny-Dundas Hill-Humbie Farm trig-Craigie Hill-Mansion Hill-New England-Mons Hill-Dalmeny. Pheasants not peasants.campagvelocet24/09/2018
From SE, cycled up to the NW end of the lake, then right up a grass track towards a big red wall. Keep right of the wall then over a wooden gate and left up a rough path and through a break in a stone wall and on up to the summit.Topographer5701/09/2018
Sunny walk up from Kirkliston and entered via South Lodge. Followed the road round to left past the Glamping tents (which were largely unoccupied) then left at a T junction round the hill and up past a gate and gained top through a hole in the wall. Views somewhat restricted by treetops which was a pity as it was a warm clear evening.Jubilado09/07/2018
From Kirkliston, through south gate to Dundas estate, road along south side of loch then followed through the woods until a track branched off to the right, up the track then through the gap in the wall marked viewpoint.Arte Et Labore21/08/2017
Circular walk from S Queensferry via B800. Very pretty access via S gate and past loch and glamping huts. Followed round to sign for viewpoint. Agree that ground to NE slightly higher. Out via N gate past hotel. Very impressive. Final Edinburgh UA TuMP. 2*Thearlaichdubh14/08/2017
Walk up from Kirkliston and west into Dundas castle estate along south side of loch and up pat high brick wall to summit probably about20-30m north of the summit wall then South to trig pillar S3132 and back in the dark to buy a veg curry in the local Chinese takeawayvegibagger01/04/2017
Golf Club car park, Castle access road, waymarked path round S side, up ridge to join track leading to signed viewpoint. Agree with chrisbien ground here prob higher although little ridge in wood to N possibleRHW11/12/2016
Via golf club and waymarked path. Then along the ridge.fasgadh23/12/2015
from cottage to the north.good tracks.robertphillips03/06/2015
Mixed messages: there are signs saying there is no access without appointment, but once inside there are signed footpaths. I walked past the golf clubhouse, then there doesn't seem to be any need to cut across. But the descent to the loch is easier. The loch would have been tranquil if the geese hadn't got all shouty just because I was walking past.Pete R01/05/2015
Walked up the road to the golf club then found Stac Lee's permissive path to aid progress to summit. I enjoyed viewing the Llamas on a foggy morning.Dugswell226/12/2014
Easy circuit from golf course car park to east, public access path signposted to bypass castle grounds to south, returned alongside tranquil Dundas Loch.alda21/12/2014
From SW near Carmelhill. Parked on corner near gate to reservoir. Up this road, then took to field edges heading N. Over a fence and gate, and to high point of field edge due W of summit. In along track, then cut corner up through woods to track over summit. Viewpoint sign to S of wall, or hillocks in the wood (easily seen) may be highest point. Don't think anyone would want to hang around doing a survey though. Back same way.Minto18/11/2014
From cottages from W. Top not obvious. Probably S of wall but two candidates N of wall.chrisbien01/02/2014
