Start Witches Craig Camp Site, with Irene,Dot and Chris.Hutchie04/05/2019
Parked at Pendreich CP but found empty spaces in lay-bys a few hundred metres further on. To avoid the very busy ‘tourist route ‘ to the top I followed the Walkhighlands.co.uk route slightly lower across the hill then up towards woodland then site of old settlement. Thereafter climb up to join normal route with detour to Roman Fort. Back vía same route.Jubilado01/04/2019
With Sue from CP at Blairlogie. Took the W path to meet the well engineered path avoiding the crowd (ten people) from Bridge of Allan path. Nice short day before Edinburgh.Frank29/03/2019
Doo-me-at or Dumb-yat? I choose Dumb-yat on account of the dumb signs - parked at Blairlogie Meadows (NS 831968)- up steps and through gate where greeted by two signs - horizontally L (W) to Blairlogie or R (E) along 'Hill Path'. So, I took the hill path R, expecting it to soon cut back up L (W) towards the 'homestead', but it continued E, off the RH edge of sheet 57, gaining little height until at Dumyat Farm, above which an unsigned path cut up L (possibly created by frustrated walkers) - this led up into terrain with multiple 'tops'. With having fallen off the edge of the mapped world, and trusting in blind faith, eventually, after a very steep section, arrived at white Trig Point, wrought iron brazier and memorial. Descended intended path of ascent to find out what went wrong, but ended up at Logie Kirk and a mile walk E back along A91 but couldn't see any sign of the 'missed' path, from the road.Isbjorn19/03/2019

Bagged as YSM0731 Dumyat Found ourselves unexpectedly in Stirling due to a vet referral for wee Charlie. Whilst we waited we decided to grab a few caches and trigpoints, I only expected us to manage a few Intersected Stations but as a we had extra hours allocated we decided we might manage this. Good path up and stunning views and a lovely white trigpoint. Mrs TJR put a stone on the cairn as thanks for Charlie as we'd heard on the way up that the MRI showed nothing serious which was good news. Still no closer to knowing what's happening when he has his episodes but at least it's nothing too bad ;-) 🐺🐺🐾🐾thejackrustles14/06/2017
