same route as mae parked track entrance.robertphillips07/08/2016
5th field on left over brow of hill on N/S track, then a tricky clamber over low point in cross wall (electric fence not working) and to top.arranc05/06/2016
Easy route as described by mae, nicer hill than Inshanks Fellalda04/06/2016
Followed N-S track from SE, then gate into second grazed field on left after track starts to descend, then to insulated section of electric fence at NX 10582 36069 near corner of same field, to reach unfenced ground near the summit.mae13/08/2015
Drummore - Inshanks Fell - Barncorkrie Moor - Cairn Fell - Drummore. Easy climb from the col with Barncorkrie Moor, bit trickier negotiating fences back to the minor road. By far the finest summit of the three visited though I thought Inshanks was a slightly better viewpoint.Jake99429/10/2014

Climbed from highpoint on road after visiting Inshanks Fell. from footpath to south over several fences. Didn't realise one was electric & got a shock! Pleasant summit with cairn & several other potential highpoints.citygent09/09/2013
W Insh fell from road, nr point. This highpoint definitely seems higher. Nice cairn w views up coast, rough ground chewed up bit by cattle. Beware many electric fences.nordicstar16/03/2013
Did this from the track that runs S to N. The problem is that a wall with an electrified wire needs to be crossed.there is a low point in the wall in the sixth field from the road.chrisbien10/04/2010
Visited after Inshanks Fell which I think is just a little lower on a grey morning with high cloud.Dugswell211/03/2010
