|This tiny hill has caused me a ridiculous amount of trouble! On 17 April, I tunnelled through a gap in the wire at the S end of the car park and crawled through 100 yards of rhodies to reach the southern and middle summits. On returning, I realised I had missed the northern summit. Outflanking the gate to the left, today I followed the normal route along the track and through a slight gap in the rhodies.||Nick Down1||26/04/2020|
|Rhodie free ascent, save for the last bit of one of the summit candidates.||fasgadh||03/03/2020|
|Over the gate and up through the woodland. Car park currently a wood store. With Brian R.||Play2End||16/02/2019|
|Fence more or less down so didn't have to climb gate. Quite pleasant woodland.||hillsman||29/10/2018|
|Agree with alda that summit is in the middle of rhodies and not in open ground. Parked in picnic area and had to scale high locked gate. Turn off track after 200 mts and avoid the belt of rhodies. I didnít!! Rhodies and myself could be described as dense.||Campbell Singer||30/07/2018|
|From picnic car park, ignore forest felling signs. Second bend in road, up to one side of Rhody's, almost a path now. Limited views but lovely old trees. Dry and mild.||iangalbraith||29/01/2018|
|from picnic area now used by forestry operations, track then up through trees, visited both highpoints.||robertphillips||15/12/2017|
|hole in fence from car park; round the track and up the northern ridge following various animal tracks. almost a path developing through the rhododendrons on the summit: wood wet enough today to break off a few more branches.||ajwxyzt||01/01/2017|
|Nice wood with some pleasant knolls but I thought that the highest point is probably buried under rhododendrons at about NN 59067 00673. GPS made it 2m higher than knoll at NN 59002 00678. So it took longer than expected.||alda||15/11/2016|
|As others but I found at least 3 obvious knolls!||chrisbien||09/04/2016|
|Hole in fence 20m left of gate, or broken down completely further left. Along track to huge conifer on left at bend in track. Round bend and up right, past some more large trees, and onwards to summit knoll.||Minto||25/07/2015|
|Broken down fence at entrance to picnic area allows access. It's then a pleasant stroll up through trees to the obvious knoll.||Colin Crawford||07/04/2015|
|From Lake of Menteith picnic area. Well guarded!||citygent||23/10/2014|
