Alone, Glenleith Fell to Queensbury.Grinner09/09/2017
A very enjoyable walk despite thick mist and drizzle. From Mitchellslacks, around the back of The Law, via High Church (good rocky scenery and a pond), Craih Hill (triffids) and Wee Queensberry, which is a nice hill and should not be missed. A triffid-plagued col, unable to find a good line in mist so just bludgeoned my way through the tussocks, and then an easy climb off piste to Queensberry. Down via an easy ATV track to pick up the outward track below New House. And for afters? A quick pog up The Law. It had to be done, and is well worthwhile. Was it just the mist concealing something nasty, or is this one of the few areas in Southern Scotland that has not been sacrificed for our insatiable desire for electricity?Gill17/02/2017
From Mitchellslacks, a few places to park. Used good path round S side of The Law, then landrover tracks where possible over High Church and to Wee Queensbury- a nice summit. Slog up Queensbury on easiest terrain I could find- good going. Fine view but a little shocked how many windfarms are in the view. The descent from the cairn to the fence 200- 300 m S of New House was very good underfoot, with a landrover track most of way, then a quick walk down a good path back to the car. This way round minimised views of the big windfarm on the E side of Queensbury. Fine weather with distant views.pwheeler16/05/2016
From S along the road from Mitchellslacks (didn't realise until we walked through that it was accceptable to park over bridge at Mitchellslacks). Lionel Bidwell's log below gave all the info needed for an easy ascent. Route and write-up at: http://gayleybird.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/wauk-hill-and-queensberry.htmlGayle07/05/2016

Solo. From end of public road at Kinnelhead. On track to Lochanhead. Sign pointing to right of way to Queensberry but no obvious path or track. Went along beside forest to begin with but then looped to the north to avoid cattle. On descent cattle had moved so I was able to keep close to forest.pwbellarby05/06/2013
