Logged Descriptions  (logged by 20 users)ByDate of Ascent
A lovely round on foot from Letham. Not doing Dunbog, I descended diagonally towards the end of a long arable field. The field was rounded thanks to a path through a small wood. Once in the wood it is trivial to get to the ruin at the foot of the hill. From here a path goes up to the summit through gorse. Beautiful area with lots of rock outcrops and contour detail.fasgadh23/03/2019
A pleasant 3 hour circular walk from Dunbog with just cows and the occasional fence to contend with - Dunbog Hill, Balmeadow Hill, Cunnoquhie East Hill & West Hill, Cairnie Hill.summitter07/09/2018

From Dunbog. Drove all the way around to the start of the track, and parked in the farm yard, against house wall. Saw no one, so they didn't object. Did a round of all 4 Tumps, anti-clockwise, starting on Dunbog Hill.Minto25/10/2014
