On a round of the 5 Donalds. From Coulter Allers Farm. On own.MorecambeMonkey23/04/2019
Easy parking W. of bridge at 033332 & up Scawdmans Hill & Cardon Hill. From Cardon Hill, over Birnies Bowrock & then SW alongside fence for 150m or so before making way across to ATV track which runs up alongside fence to summit cairn. Descended back along ATV track & then path across fairly rough terrain to fence junction at 054298 - NW alongside fence; rough at first, but picked up good tracks over Tippet Knowe & down to Nisbet & car.

From Nisbet via Bendrie, Cow Castle, White Hill, Scawdman's Hill and Birnies Bowrock. Back over Cardon Hill and north down the ridge. Solo.Dangerous Dave14/01/2019
With Shaky & Smithy on a beautful cold, clear Ne'er Day walk from Culter Allers Farm. Up Fell Shin to the summit of Culter Fell & then following the fence line down & across to Chapelgill Hill. Crossed the fence to reach Birnies Bowrock directly & then followed the E side of the fence to the summit of Cardon Hill. Followed the other side of the fence back to the col underneath Culter Fell dodging a lot of detritus from the old fence. Dropped very steeply down next to Kings Beck to gain the track back to the start. A better plan would be to stay high on the shoulder to the N of the gully & then drop down the heathery slope to pick up the track lower down.NotReallyABagger01/01/2019

Solo. From road junction near Culter Allers Farm. To end of public road and along track that goes to Coulter Reservoir. There is a path/track up the broad ridge coming down from Culter Fell.
