Parking area beyond waterworks at 627055 & up Craigbraneoch Hill & Cannock Hill. From Cannock Hill, followed a decent path alongside fence to summit cairn. Continued to Meikledodd Hill, Alwhat & Alhang. (S)gerrybowes23/05/2018
S/F Water of Ken carpark (campervan-friendly). Via Alhang, Alwhat and Meikledodd. Misty so would have been very tricky without the fences to follow. Back down via Larg Hill. Easy ground for the most part and not too boggy.AndrewFinnimore11/04/2018

A lovely day doing five Donalds.Play2End09/08/2017
Climbed by an unmapped forestry track from Craigdarroch towards Cannock Hill. Only the last short climb to the fence is grim tussocks, and the non-opening gate has to be climbed. After Cannock Hill, on to Blacklorgs and Blackcraig Hills, with only modest amounts of squelchy bog. Down on the good path to Blackcraig.Gill16/02/2017

Parked on the minor road beyond the entrance to Blackcraig farm. Then up towards this farm beford diverting across a small bridge to use gate to get onto hill. Then north through some fields before taking a more direct route to Blackcraig Hill with 2 inches of snow on its northern side. Then onto Blacklorg Hill which was easy enough before returning by a route crossing the Craig Burn to join a track lower down to Craig Farm and then back to the minor road.Dugswell210/04/2016
