Parked in layby at end of public road. Saw a white pheasant when walking on private road so that was a treat. Straight forward well trodden route up, with a wide spectrum of weather in a short time! Got to love scorching sun then sideways stinging rain. Great views a bit spoiled by the windfarms, but still an enjoyable walk.Eliza10013/08/2019
A nice walk from Glenkirk, over Congrie Hill on a good track then a path all the way to Culter Fell, for Marilyn No. 1200. On to Gathersnow Hill taking a direct route up from Holm Nick on sheep trods and short grass and bilberry higher up. Met Alda on the way down. Down via Coomb Hill to Holms Waterhead on a vague path, then heather and long grass to a rough ATV track through deep heather, improving lower down. Excellent cafe in Broughton, open until 18.00Gill08/07/2019

Nipped up with Gareth and Jim (and Corra) cloudy on top but a fine walk altogether.GravelMonkey21/02/2015
From Glenkirk via Gathersnow Hill and back down from Chapelgill Head- a fine circuit from a lovely valley, ample parking space at Glenkirk. Good views of surrounding hills, though you can see how industrialised this part of the uplands is becoming. From Culter Fell the many windfarms are all at a distance enough not to intrude on the enjoyment of this quiet hill countrypwheeler22/09/2014
round of 7 new donalds.robertphillips07/08/2014
After a separate short morning walk drove to valley to northeast of summit to finish the morning before heading south. Included two tops to north in the round. Straightforward aprt from 15 minutes untangling a ram with its horn interlocked with a fence - it was not very co-operative but I got it out in the end using trekking poles to lever down the wire. On final descent found a cage trap with a raven as the lure. Not sure if it conformed with legal requirements and could not see the required info tag. Reported it later to SSPCA who handle these things.dickscroop11/06/2014
Walked up the very steep Fell Shin to the summit after bagging another county top; Broad Law earlier that day.DanTrig08/06/2014
