From Glen Kitten road end, mostly on endless wind farm roads. Should have taken a bike.PeteN13/07/2019

From Derry along the SUW.NormanW17/04/2019
A five mile walk taking an hour and a half starting from a gravel track west of Polbae (which is signed Southern Upland Way) as written in Johnny Muirs book. The starting point for the route in the book is in a authorised vehicle only area so I would recommend using a pull in area a mile before his starting point just to be safe, although if your not put off by the sign you could drive right up to the base of the hill and leave your self a ten minute walk.WAYNE ROWLETT21/07/2018
Drove past Derry and along the continuing good track with just a few drivable potholes. Left the car at junction and strolled up the excellent path (Southern Upland Way) to my final Historic County Top. Great viewpoint on a fine, hot morning. Drove further along track to wind farm quarry for Benbrake HillCampbell Singer03/07/2018
Second visit as I was doing a wider circuit. Parts of the SUW very plagued by windthrowColin Crawford23/03/2018

Lunch stop on Southern Upland Way.clivevilla31/05/2017
6th and final top of the day on an elongated loop from New Luce, climbing Craigbernoch Fell, Big Craigenlee, White Fell, Far Cairn and Benbrake Hill using track that profiles around Western flank before using a forest ride to join up with the Southern Upland way although it stopped about 40m away so had to push through the tightly packed conifers to break through! Very interesting briophytes though! Had lunch at the top. Excellent views. Continued on the Southern Upland way then on minor road to New Luce.Dazingdale16/04/2017

A late walk on a fine evening, so drove carefully to the track junction below the summit climb. Magnificent views marred by hellish new windfarm.Nick Down129/07/2016
Aborted morning climb in East Lothian because of thick snow - arrived at 3:00 with a couple of hours light remaining. Parked in a clearing just after Darloskine Bridge and walked along Southern Upland Way right to the summit. The clearest late afternoon imaginable. Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Lake District, Goat Fell - and was that Snowdon far far away? Back to car just as darkness fell. 6.2 miles.callumorr15/02/2016
drove up to within 400m of top from derry.robertphillips08/09/2015
Parked close to Derry. An easy one and a half hour walk to the summit and back. With GB.bolton18/07/2014
Parked just beyond end of unclassified road, about 250m E. of Derry W. along forest track to junction with path at 241737 Up path to summit trig point. (PM)gerrybowes18/07/2014
Easy walk, took in Wells o' the Rees, and Linn's tomb on nearby Craigmoddie. Had inteneded heading directly from Craig-dhu cairn to Craigmoddie but there is newly planted dense forest so used the Linn's tomb path to Craigmoddie, which was a liitle boggy in places.borderterrier24/08/2013
It took longer to drive in from the main road than it did to climb the hill, but surprisingly good (if cloudy) views. Then on to the Merrick.killiedaft30/06/2013
I had to wait 15 minutes for the 2 forestry men to remove the remains of a recently felled tree before driving to the cut off to the second last farm where I parked. Mist lifting so good views after reversing SUW to gain top.Dugswell216/04/2011

Done on Southern Upland Way.ngthack16/07/2009
Miserable misty day on the Southern Upland Way. We parked just short of Derry and walked in but the track is in excellent condition (better than the last few miles of tarmaced public road) and you could drive right to the foot of the hill.andy21/06/2009

On SUW on a well used farm road. Past Loch Derry onto WDP with signpost. To top at 15.00. Slight drizzle.arranc10/04/2007
