|I finally lost my bing virginity. Thoroughly enjoyed my ascent of this from the North, together with its subsidiary top.||sclater||31/01/2020|
|Not a pretty bing on a damp and grey January afternoon after visiting my dad in Wishaw General.||Dugswell2||21/01/2020|
|From the East, followed a Range Rover to the summit.||curlebd||18/01/2020|
|Steep ascent from the north.||Play2End||29/12/2019|
|From E, great looking little hill on a frosty morning with cloud inversion. Nearby trig pillar and BMs gone.||RHW||01/12/2019|
|Had walked past this in the past and wondered whether it had sufficient prominence to qualify as a tump. No pre-emptive bag though, so instead it was a break of journey at Shotts on the way home from a rare trip to work in Edinburgh.||campagvelocet||20/09/2019|
|a small detour on my journey to edinburgh,from the east track entrance.||robertphillips||18/07/2019|
|Grand views from the top of the heap. Various tracks around the large site.||neimcv||14/07/2019|
|News of this new Tump got to me just as we were preparing to leave for Devon. Got back last night & thought I'd better come over right away, otherwise it would probably take ages to get round to it. North Lanarkshire recompleted. Easy from the track to the E, trail bikers everywhere, some of primary school age.||agentmancuso||14/07/2019|
|As it is in the middle of flat countryside it has wide ranging views.||hillsman||08/07/2019|
|En route to AGM weekend. Convenient parking to east and old industrial track to foot and then up the bing incline with some old sleepers still in situ.||Campbell Singer||05/07/2019|
|A sort-of first bag for me; first to climb and log this hill since it was listed on hill-bagging. Well done to the pre-emptive baggers! From the B7057 to the East. Large layby at start of track. Path off the R (north) through trees avoids worst of big puddles, but is a bit muddy. As bings go this is a very pleasant one.||Minto||01/07/2019|
|1 hour round trip from Shotts railway station. Pavement all the way until the muddy track. Excellent bing with remains of the old railway.
A great tourist attraction for Shotts.||Thearlaichdubh||28/06/2019|
|Track from B717.||chrisbien||19/06/2019|
|A bing, hardly very attractive, but certainly well vegetated||Colin Crawford||06/03/2017|
