Up the wall from the west, keeping to left of wall for most of the way. The deer fence proved to be the toughest obstacle.Chris Peart02/12/2019
Almost quit before this hill because of torrential rain but it stopped by the time I had driven down to Over Bohespic. In theory, one could drive up the un-gated logging road to park at a large lay-by just before the log stacks near the end, she said innocently, provided that there is no logging going on. Sundays at 16.30 seem good. Up the road to the last stacks, then up the boundary between the felled area and the standing trees, over a very short section of brash, then easy going. The felling has been very neat and tidy. At the wall, hop the gap, then walk up along the wall through lovely native trees almost to the top, then back over the wall into the sitka for the last bit to the summit. Much better than I had imagined.Gill18/08/2019
From road to the west along wall. Kept south of wall until deer fence turns north, then crossed into open woodland. Back to south side just before summit.Winterfloodian12/06/2019
Up from wall end to West as per Coinneach. Stay to right of wall. No great views.willyross26/03/2019
Up the forest track from Over Bohespic. Easy going but still a lousy hill.Play2End29/12/2018
Approach from W - N of forest, then through open forest - finally some fallen trees local to summit & on N side of wall.ger02/09/2018
Parked in layby at wallend.Over new gate with deer fence as open area is now planted with trees. easy going,climbed deer fence again at corner and on to summit only crossing wall 50 yds before summit due to fallen trees. summit has red tapes marking it. Back by same route in 1 hourCoinneach22/08/2018
3 of 3: From minor road on west at 721629ChrisR25/01/2018
Solo. Parked at the start of the track to Over Bohespic. Went up the forest track NE and the NW. This track is broad; it looks as though it has seen fairly recent work done on it to accommodate forest harvesting. I took the eastern track at a fork and then went northwards through the forest, taking advantage of what forest rides there were, to the summit of Drumcroy Hill. Young trees were growing in the rides but progress was helped by deer tracks. There is a cairn on top of the wall at a wall junction at the summit. There is another cairn immediately on the south side of the wall. Descended more or less same way. There was a cloud inversion with much mist low down in the valleys. However, I was out of the mist for the walk and there was no precipitation.pwbellarby21/12/2017
Looked impregnable from the distance, and on the map, but turned out to be a delightful stroll through the woods following the wall all the way.AndrewFinnimore01/12/2017
Part sun, dry, snow, calm, freezing, good views between trees.iangalbraith11/11/2016
Solo jog up by the forest edge.amswanston18/06/2016

From parking space on yellow road to west at NN 72040 62899.Alan Moore24/04/2016
Afternoon stroll from west following Dun Coillich morning. Good easy slope on forest edge, summit guarded by fallen treesN.Morters19/03/2016
Very straightforward by this route. Snow made it pretty. No newts. But a hidden icy pond caught us all out.jenx03/02/2016
With Jenx and Will. From the point to West where wall meets minor road. New deer fence starts here and can be avoided by starting on the forest side. Easy trail to follow, continuation into the marked woodland is easy, thin natural tree cover. Wall junction easily found. Nice walk with snow in groubd and a cold wind from Schiehallion to accompany us.nordicstar03/02/2016
From the wee lay by and up to the top via the excellent path by the forest edge. Saw a newt. Lousy hill.Play2End01/05/2015
from road junction up side of wall to summit.robertphillips01/06/2014
Final of 4 on day. from junction at720635, but 3 car layby at 721629. trudge up beside wall until you eventually get to summit area. This is a terrible mess of windblown timber especially North side so best to cross into forest when you reach itThearlaichdubh19/04/2014
Self and Dog. No snow.Invicta1408/04/2014
Followed dyke up from 720635 on the road to Tummell Bridge when approaching from Trinafour. Dyke goes all the way to summit.bowlesy29/05/2013
Left car opposite phone box S of Trinafour and headed up rough track and directly through the forest and soft crusty snow to the summit. I hope the summit really is at the wall corner and not underneath a pile of inaccessible fallen trees just beyond the wall.Topographer5708/02/2013

Over rough moor steadily up by a wall, through hole in fence and followed wall into forest To top at 13.25. where two other walls met.arranc12/06/2002
Went up along forest edge, past attractive larch and pine open wood on north side. May 2015: There is a new fence on the forest edge, and no provision for crossing it has been provided at the corner. There is a locked anti climb gate at NN 73375 63682 probably best betfasgadh06/01/2001
