From Colpy. Road walk at first then up lane to old kirk and straight on (going north) along a good track to the unsightly turbines and beyond to the trig. There is a track almost to the top which leads from the Middle turbine.trimarc220/05/2018
P on hard-standing just off road a few hundred m E of turn off to Kirkton Farm, S of summit. Could drive along road past farm to beyond the woods (as a mountain biker did).ger20/04/2018
Drove up track in forest, leaving road at approx NJ 656 333. Plenty of parking at track junction. Left hand branch heads uphill then West to join wind farm access track just above the field corner. Easy from there to wind turbines and onwards to summit. 6th of 7 today, on a lovely sunny day: Ben Aidan, Knockan, Meikle Balloch, Knock Hill, Fourman Hill, Hill of Tillymorgan, Hill of Foudland.PGCE20/02/2018
Left car at passing place on the Cadgers Rd just before Cairnhill farms and over a metal gate , followed the field edge up to a barbed wire fence at a small stand of trees , once over that it's a straightforward trundle through the mine workings to the trig point.torkm30/04/2017
Walk up from the old church past the new wind turbine good viewsNozzer14/04/2017
Bagging the trig. Loved this hill.BigJ14/04/2017
Pleasant walk with Elizyanne. Parked at NJ648326. Much has changed on this hill recently with the addition of wind turbines. A suggested route would be up from Kirkton Farm to NJ649337 (new power cabin) turn right and continue on this track to the middle of the 3 turbines. Go straight ahead past the turbine. the track goes round to the right of the old quarry then its on to the summit.GmacT20/02/2017

Weather fair.MountainMac23/01/2016
With Jenx, easiest of five today. Parked to East near old quarry at road high point. At end of a passing space but room enough. Straight up pasture to fence by old beech trees then rougher ground to summit. Up and down in 40 mins.nordicstar19/01/2016

Parked 650329 by ruined church. Took track N across farmland and through wood. Near far edge took path towards top to quarries; OK but best to go on to open country and follow path along wood edge; returned this way. T Pt among quarries (18:50). Dry. Finish 19:15dbb21/05/2015
from high point on cadgers road.robertphillips15/05/2015
