|Parked to the south on the minor road then up track towards Broken Cross trig in its dark forest location then onward to Broken Cross Muir north top then back south over any other likely high points. Then headed SSE to road 400 metres north of my car. Six to eight deer seen along with some small wader like birds.||Dugswell2||10/11/2019|
|Back again. Went to Colin's south top and Chris Crocker's top.||chrisbien||21/08/2019|
|P start of road to Opencast Mine. Just before gate along track heading NW. Along first FB to mine road. Went to Colin's north top and Agent's top then back along NW edge of forest.||chrisbien||24/07/2019|
|Went in from the mast access track just E of the motorway, across one field of thigh-high grass, along the pylon FB till it got boggy then through the trees and up the slope to a wide track which I followed to due E of the summit. If I went back I'd use the narrower FB that skirts the 258 spot on the 1:25k, but otherwise this route was sound. We wandered around a bit trying out different bumps but made the high point to be at NS 84872 37264, just south of a lochan with two large boulders.||agentmancuso||21/07/2019|
|One of the most natural looking former spoil heaps which I've ever visited. Up from the old road near Baillieshall farm, onto an area of high grassland, vegetation knee deep in places and cattle grazing. The open caste industry isn't pretty but they've made a fine job here of landscaping the old workings||Colin Crawford||18/07/2019|
