From Castlelaw carpark.Chris Peart22/06/2018
From Caerketton followed path westward down steep path into Windy Door Nick then back up well defined path to summit. Very warm sunny day but distant haze reduced helpfulness of viewpoint indicator. Descended by path heading slightly left of path for ascent. A bit further along detoured over the grassy bump of Muilepuile then down on to well defined track to join path to Swanson where it crosses the burn. Down past golf course to walkers’ car park.Jubilado27/04/2018

Davi's first big hill at 5 years old on a cracking day. A great hill, outstanding views.Chris Mac26/03/2017
Last Hill of the day and last Marilyn in the Pentlands. Quick up and down from Castlelaw car park (NT 23002 63731). Spectacular views of Edinburgh, Arthur's Seat and North Berwick Law to the east. Very windy, very cold but no sign of forecast showers, probably drying up for Storm Doris due tomorrow.SteveSmith22/02/2017
