Fire smouldering on top. We managed to reduce it a bit, involving a jungly trip down to the reservoir and back for more water, but had to call the fire brigade to finish the job. Idiots had chucked a hot barbecue down the cliff (as well as cans, glass bottles etc). Some people would be mentally outclassed by the average amoebaIainT16/07/2018
Started from the CP by the concrete bridge North of the escarpment. There is some forestry working taking place this summer, but no need to deviate from the escarpment Edge path. The summit of Middlethird hill is one of a number of y mounds on either side of the path where it bows towards the grassy apron of the dam, probably the around the lower trunk of a Scots pine. Here and the summit of Lewis Hill are superb viewpoints. Returned via the western bank of the reservoir and wished I hadn't, given the amount of litter in an otherwise beautiful landscape.Nick Down124/06/2018

Scenic - with Lynn, Peter, Sarah and Paul, from S, on to Middlethird Hill and back round reservoir.nix_snilloc08/04/2017
Ran up and down in 20 minutes from the south. Fairly steep but good path. Good views from the summit and well kept trig point.Stevend101/01/2017
Here for the trigpoint Sauchie Crag. TP:UK log: Lovely walk up in the evening light, a good set of geocaches too, great view from the top. YSM322 Sauchie Cragthejackrustles16/03/2016
Up via Old Sauchie, then along the craigs and down via the bridge (marked as a ford) over Bannock Burn.mardypig03/08/2015
Via linking path from Middlethird Hill. Very enjoyable walk up from that side.Lindsay M29/03/2015
I wish I'd read the early log comments. Parked to the S, very unpleasant crossing deep mud tracks and brashings for 200m to get to undisturbed path. If you must climb this in 2015, don't do it from the south. Once beyond the initials mess, a very pleasant walk.Minto02/01/2015
Figure of eight walk from bridge over Bannockburn. An excellent walk along the craig edge.richtea504022/12/2014
Tree felling in progress, usual path blocked. Suggested path by the burn is swampy with no indication of how to rejoin the path beyond the devastation. Super views from crags.neimcv30/11/2014
