Biked up Meath Hill forest track. Legged the Argo track continuing up past prominent mound the made a direct line under Reppock Knowe. The direct line more often than not fails to live up to expectation. Kept to the track near fence over Reppock Knowe on return.Eddie28/09/2017

Parked B743. Up track through Meath Hill Forest. Followed barbed wire fence to Reppoch Knowe. S to cross wall then N to Wedder Hill. Followed a series of feint tracks and paths to Pennelburn Linn and back along track to car.chrisbien18/06/2011
If coming from the trig at the other end of Blackside, keep to the high ground on the left, the peat hags and boggy moss on the direct route are wearying. The cairn at point 430m is a good lunch spot too.agentmancuso24/07/2007
