from the cp track past farm, gate and stile to the top.robertphillips25/02/2020
Parked in the car park opposite Tullybaccart. A pleasant walk in following the forest track to the trig point on Lundie Craigs. Went east from there, descending steeply on grass, then across some very boggy ground and up to Smithton Hill. Descended to more boggy ground, then along the forest edge to a stile at 26790 36099. Tried to head towards the road, but too much gorse. Followed vehicle tracks behind the farm to emerge at a metal gate at 26394 36332, which we'd passed(not gone through)on the way along the forest track.LizH15/12/2019
From the car park opposite the entrance to Tullybaccart, past the farmhouse through Pitcur Wood to Ledcrieff Loch, then on through Drumsuldry Wood to Lundie Craigs. A pleasant forest track pretty much all the way to the trig, returning over the wonderful Lundie escarpment down across a glen and up a series of animal trails to Smithton Hill. Further trails take you SW to a stile just above Tullybaccart and back to the car.summitter17/02/2019
From Laird's Loch CP, past Tullybaccart and up through a door next to a high metal gate to the signposted viewpoint. Over a high style and up narrow path towards the summit.Topographer5708/10/2017
Anti-clockwise round of 3 from Lundie village hall. Once down the steep grass of Lundie Craigs very pleasant sheep paths skirt round the intervening hill. I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND CLIMBING SMITHTON HILL FROM LUNDIE DUE TO NEW HUGE CATTLE BARN, ELECTRIC FENCES and NO ADMITTANCE SIGNS. The marked track mentioned by Colin is no longer useful.Minto16/07/2017
From Laird's Loch car park, via viewpoint then over deer fence. Spotted 3 kestrels on the way.WOORSIE25/06/2017
As alda. There is a high stile over the deer fence at about 285mchrisbien29/01/2017
Good path from Laird's Loch car park to viewpoint SW of hill, then narrow path to summit area. Pleasant walk, much easier than expected.alda03/02/2016
