Continuation of walk from Ben Ever, coming up path onto summit ridge/plateau to reach trig pillar and shelter cairn of BC for first lunch sheltering behind cairn wall from the strong W wind. The mist lifted and the sun emerged slowly and then clear sky. Continued E to Andrew Gannel Hill. First visit to BC was also solo, on 17/01/2012 on Graham round, with blizzard conditions.jacobus13/11/2018
With Keith from Alva Glen car park up to Ben Evers then round over Ben Cleuch, The Law and Andrew Gannel Hill to KIng's Seat. Returned by Tillicoultry and woodland path. Very pleasant walk. Saw helicopter land near The Law as we descended.SS25/08/2018
A terrific traverse of 8 Ochil New Donalds with Martin66, Smithy & MarkH with cars at both ends. From the parking area by the side of Castlehill Reservoir, up the track to Glenquey, followed cut grass path from NW of reservoir beyond its limit on map all the way to the summit. Continued easily over Whitewisp Hill & Taramangie Hill. Dropped steeply SW & slogged up the path to King's Seat (worth continuing to SE end for view). Dropped W & up path NW to Andrew Gannel Hill. Crossed fence & took direct path to Ben Cleuch: a rather untidy summit. Round to the bump of Ben Ever & down tracks to Alva Glen. Brilliant round in great weather.NotReallyABagger11/08/2018
