A walk along the canal then over the bridge to follow a muddy track westward. At a junction followed this path to the right and after a short sharp climb turned east. At a fairly open area followed a shallow 'valley' eastward to the summit. Good view of Forth Bridges and white hills in Fife.Jubilado25/11/2017
After main top. Pleasant traverse revealing a lovely little lochan and excellent red exposed rocks. Back down to canal and then bus from Broxburn back to Edinburgh. Best bing in W Lothian.Thearlaichdubh07/11/2017

The hill was enlivened by the Sunday afternoon trials bikers. I chatted to one, who pointed out the slope where he fractured his skull five months ago...Pete R20/12/2015
From S, Minto route. Parked Clifton View, straight towards bing, over bridge then straight up nice little spur, firm shale and a few scrambly bits, grassy summit. W doen easy valley thrn ran down scree gully. Great little hill.RHW12/12/2015
From B8082 along road to Industrial Estate after a wander about found the hidden valley and used it up and down. First walk since tearing a thigh musclechrisbien15/08/2015
Reclaiming my county completion for West Lothian. Directly up from the canal bridge, quite a fun route.Colin Crawford25/07/2015
From the NW corner of the industrial estate to the south, lots of parking. Across open ground to bridge over canal. I went straight up (like you do) lung-bursting thigh-tearingly steep. Easier way would be to continue to left (west) working your way round and up, to ascend a long 'hidden valley' which emerges on the plateau very near the summit. This is also a good way down! Very flat summit area.Minto30/06/2015
