A fabulous day for a wander up Glen Lee to the Stables, then across the bridge and easily but steeply up the hill on grass and short heather. Spectacular views. Down via Falls of Unich after deciding not to play at lemmings. With John Gilbert.Gill08/09/2019
Cycled from Mark car park, walked up past falls to col, then north to summit. Back more directly to Lee. Just over 3 hrs return from car park excluding rest on summit.willyross22/06/2019
Up via Falls of Unich and down via Bruntwood Craig with B and I.Danmawr04/02/2018
Useful footbridge over Water of Lee then pretty easy going north-west from there and on to summit from the east. Returned down the gorge on the Fall of Unich path many hours later.alda26/10/2017
Cycled from Invermarkie (end of the Glen Esk Road) to NO391816, then direct ascent above cliffs - rough. Expect that the route past Falls of Unich would be nicer.raffemeister02/04/2017
A hill walk in what we thought would be spring like conditions, we had whiteout blizzard conditions on the approach to the summit. Some snow flurries heading up through the gorge created by the Water of Unich. Did not stop at the top for long Kasi was freezing & noticeable distressed. Did not take so long to walk back & took a short cut across the glen floor which involved crossing the Water of Lee, feet were damp enough by that time but I crossed quick enough didn't get much worse, Dianne fared a bit worse & had a semi soggy foot for the walk out & Kasi managed a wee bit of a swim even though she is usually scared of swimming. 11.8 miles a good day to keep hill fittnessLizzieG05/02/2017
With GHC via Glen Lee then down the gorge. Low cloud, then heavy rain on the way back to the car park. It should have been better than this!Play2End16/10/2016

Great winters day out, warm up walk into the glen, than a fabulous waterfall, which had spray coming off the the fall. Great views to Mayar and Driesh which were white.tallblond04/01/2013
From Invermark. Surprised had hill to self considering number of cars parked there. A bike would have saved on the long walk-in. Went up on the east side of Bruntwood Craig and down on the west side. For a while felt like mountaineering rather than crossing cow fields and grouse moors like all this week. Nice hill, shame about the name.Martin R24/11/2012
Cycled from Invermark to 395804, then ascended E ridge. Descended S ridge as far as path at 383795, then turned back NE back to cycle. (Beware of attempting direct descent to Falls of Unich: it's very steep in places.)Topographer5726/09/2011

With a friend. Had lunch at the Retreat in Glen Esk. From the car park at the top of Glen Esk. We walked up the track past Loch Lee and into Glen Lee. Crossed the Water of Lee and went up the eastern slopes of Hunt Hill, going to the north of the cliffs. Descended south and then tried to get down the cliffs to the east. We were forced to traverse a little further south before being able to get down to the path. Followed the path and then the track of the outward route.pwbellarby05/05/2002
