Good hardstanding off road parking at fence junction with Lambourne plantation. Hand railed fence to plantation then cut off NW direct for summit when fence turns to the NE. Quite rough ground beteen babies head until reach atv track then follow that all the way to summit. Ground SE edge of cairn looks highest. Attempted to follow atv track back to road but more or less due west of plantation corner seemed to be heading in wrong direction so cut off left through the babies heads again coming out on road near Lambourne bridge, 150m WSW of vanSteveSmith01/08/2020
P B743 as previously, but this time followed county boundary all the way to Wedder Hill before returning over Meanlour Hill. Long day on rough ground.agentmancuso13/06/2020
An easy walk up the ATV track starting E of Forkings, good parking next to the gate. The track follows the line of an unmapped stream past a number of wooden boxes. Partly grassy, partly boggy, it goes almost to the summit so no need for navigational aids in fog and rain.Gill24/01/2020
Up a small track to the top from the 317m spot height. Great wee hill, fab views.Play2End01/12/2019
9th tump of the day, after Hareshaw Hill and the weather cleared prior to starting out, having been on and off rain all day prior to this. I parked up at layby at NS69016 31415 on the B743 just West of the Head of Greenock water. Straightforward ascent through heather and rough grass and tussocks to the cairn and Trig pillar, recording 471m @ NS 68108 30728. Back a similar if not more direct route, being able to spot the car of course helping. Onwards to Bibblon Hill...Dazingdale27/09/2019
Up over irksome (not quite purgatorial) tussocks. Found easy ATV track on the way down. Driving rain.Isbjorn21/12/2018
Pleasant stroll from road to south. 40 minutes return.willyross15/10/2018
Followed easy ATV track as described by bolton and jonglew.Susan Bidwell11/10/2018
Easy going up quad track from gate, past small 1m enclosures which i suspect are remains of boreholes for geological coal survey.cjo11/08/2018
Roadside parking (NS 633 2964). Over a field gate and direct to top over tussocky ground. No ATV track seen.jonglew15/06/2018

From gate at NS685296 (plenty of parking) I picked up the ATV track which goes to the summit. It goes by the aforementioned boxes which look like failed tree protectors. There were Herdwick sheep on the lower slopes.Chris Peart27/03/2018
From Forkings to the south. Crossing a couple of fields aiming first for 2 small wind turbines, then open hill to summit. Much brighter and drier than Kirkland earlier in the dayN.Morters21/10/2017
From a gate about 300 m east of Forkings. Follow the ATV track where the wooden boxes are. Just under 40 minutes return walk in clear weather. Solo.bolton17/06/2017
Popped up to the summit in 15 minutes from inbetween Lamon Burn and the Cattery. An excellent viewpoint on a clear day and an easy stroll up an ATV track to the top.Chris Mac02/06/2017
Ascended from the south, starting about 500m East of Forkings. Parked near a gate, followed the butts/boxes to a quad track that leads to easier ground on summit slopes. Thanks for the heads up Rick and Jen. Nice short walk using this route, approx. 45 mins in total, and despite the early morning drizzle I enjoyed this hill.assynt_bob03/04/2016
From Head of Greenock water, layby. Rough track to higher ground (almost). ok from there. Overcast, dry, good viewsiangalbraith25/10/2015
A good track can be found from the gate on the road to the south - just east of Forkings Farm. Away from the track the ground is very tussocky.JohnW18/10/2015
With Jenx, up from road to SE.We went from pt height 317 but rough ground. Better just half a km to West nearer to Forkings, follow the butts/boxes to a quad track that leads to easier ground on summit slopes. We returned that way, much better going.nordicstar30/08/2015
Used track east of Forkings for an easy bag.AndrewFinnimore12/10/2014
up from the south on road at side of wood, massive cairn.robertphillips30/05/2014

Start: B743 ENE of summit. Notes: Short but rough ascent through large tussocks.raffemeister22/06/2013
Solo. Parked at layby on B743 at Head of Greenock Water. SW on traces of track beside drainage ditch. Continued with no track or path through heathery terrain to summit. There's a trig point and cairn.pwbellarby04/06/2013
Pleasant afternoon out with 12 week old son, nephew and brother. Easy climb from SE but would have been even simpler if we had found the quad track slighly further west rather than ascending from layby next to the stream across tussocky ground.andy11/08/2012
Aged 12 weeks. With Dad, cousin Billy and uncle David.fraser11/08/2012
From south. A quad track, indistinct at first, starts at a gate about 500m east of Forkings. Other routes from this direction may be obstructed by long, tussocky grass.Topographer5726/07/2012
