With 5 others. Glad it was frozen ground. Recommend wellies otherwise. RHW reckoned summit was S of the pair near the lochans. Forest fun getting to trig - someone made me go, I really didn't want to.Minto01/12/2019
Dugswell sums up my final, for the time being, South Lanarkshire TuMP. Benign conditions to visit all the undulations and also a fairly challenging trig. A niceish hill with several lochans. Ground frozen helped too.Thearlaichdubh01/12/2019
A revisit for Charlie Scott's final South Lanarkshire Tump with Rob, Colin, Norman and Jonathan Chopper Woods. Cool and sunny weather made it fun and good to help Colin Crawford fine another trig.Dugswell201/12/2019
Lovely sunny day with firm frozen ground underfoot. Helping Charlie celebrate a Tump completion.NormanW01/12/2019
Second visit for Charlie's South Lanarkshire completionColin Crawford01/12/2019
Group of us to celebrate Thearlaichdubh's South Lanarkshire completion, on a fab frosty day. From S, X-rds, NW then NE to summits - my hand level suggested the eastern 2 summits near lochan about equal; the 2 eastern summits about 1m lower, but too close to be certain. Back via trigRHW01/12/2019
For what itís worth I determined the HP to be at NS 84875 37261 in agreement with Agentmancuso.chalky195326/11/2019
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.Dugswell210/11/2019
Back again. Went to Colin's south top and Chris Crocker's top.chrisbien21/08/2019
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.chrisbien24/07/2019
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.agentmancuso21/07/2019
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 workingsColin Crawford18/07/2019
