A windy day to visit this one but a good path most of the way up. We hoofed up direct for the last 250m. Far too windy to hang about on the top. Bagged a couple of geocaches on the way and the earth cache at the top.thejackrustles03/04/2017

Gleaming white this morning, then cloud topped, but by the time I got on the slopes the ice had melted and the weather relented after the initial hour when the wind turned NE. So up the short, N side and down the recommended WNW side. Fine on the top, decent views, could keep an eye on Largo Law to see what that NE wind was blowing in. On to Bishop Hill.pwheeler22/03/2017

11.1 mile walk from car park near Craigmead, started in overcast weather, clouds just brushing the summits, walked along lane and up to West Lomond in improving weather, left the summit SE and down trails not marked on map to Lothrie Burn, walked along main path then along boggy tracks to the top of Bishop Hill, down the same way and along main path east passing Little Ballo farm, back to car park, while it was starting to rain, had lunch at the car and 30 mins later headed out to East Lomond in rain and low cloud, followed path to summit and utterly useless toposcope (thick cloud), visited trig and walked back to car.DanTrig12/10/2016

first of three tops today, starting from the Bonnet Stane car park near Gateside this 3.5 mile walk with a climb of 400m can be found in Jonny Muir's book of UK County tops. I took 1 hour 45 mins to finish the walk and care should be taken when coming down Hoglayers in damp conditions as I slid a third of the way down before righting myself.WAYNE ROWLETT25/08/2016
Parked in CP near Easter Gospetry. NE along road to the path leading to the Bunnet Stone and from there, took a direct line straight to the top. VV steep in places, but doable. SSW descent to path and return to car park. 6 miles.callumorr13/08/2016

An evening ascent of the steeper northern slopes from the road near Nether Urquhart passing Bonnet Stane, and up the Hoglayers. Clear evening, if a little windy.VirtualMountain16/04/2014
Done in conjunction with Bishop hill. Twelfth day in a row on the hills first one that left me dry at the end! The local authority in their wisdom have tried to put a path diversion through glen Vale due to 'danger of falling rocks'. Elf n' safety at its worse. Obviously i ignored this silly edict and i saw that at the western end of the path somebody had ripped the sign down. Good on them! I urge everybody else to ignore these foolish commands.thenomad25/02/2014
