Parked on verge just E of Denend, next to double gate into field. Sign stats no parking in farmyard for walkers. Clockwise round of four: Kinpurney Hill, Back Drum, Henderston Hill, Hatton Hill. Up the footpath to the top for this one.Minto03/09/2017
Ascent from the west at Newtyle village, up to the tower and descent to the wast.brandybordeaux21/07/2017
Parked just before the footpath sign on the verge, not the greatest parking but really didn't have any other choice. Headed up to the den which was a lovely walk along the burn. Then for the steep climb up the hill. First bit is the worst and then it levels out a little. Fantastic views from the top.thejackrustles25/02/2017
Lovely walk from Newtyle. Parking in village beside playing fields on denend road. Marked path up through the Den and onto hill.hils09/01/2017
Nice walk up from Newtyle in the autumn sunshine. Further than it appears and steeper in the upper parts as well. Pleasant by the stream in the trees but a bit windier on the top.Walker Dan02/11/2016
From the east side of Newtyle and up The Den. Cloud starting to roll in on the summit to restrict views, especially to the south.Windy Corner18/09/2016
