|Houses have now been built close to the top and there is a big area of ground awaiting development. Highpoint in the enclosure but it is artificial both outside and inside. The highest point by the fence is well defended by whins. Approaches from the north are better.||fasgadh||09/11/2019|
|As others. I thought that the highest point might be in the enclosure but it's academic as you cant get in.||hillsman||28/01/2019|
|Up the pleasant woodland walk from the north end of Cowdenbeath, then explored the gorse bushes at W boundary of covered reservoir. Great views.||Thearlaichdubh||28/10/2018|
|drove along track west of top, parked at locked gate, wet grass to gorse.||robertphillips||18/07/2018|
|Up through the new housing developments to the roundabout then around the reservoir compound. Entering the compound that includes the likely HP was a no-no.||Topographer57||28/12/2017|
|As chrisbien. Knoll in gorse W side of compound fence matches 25k spot and could well be natural hp; similar to Ferry Hills situation. As with Pinnel Hill, OS summit definition not always reliable around here||RHW||29/01/2017|
|I'm with Chris and Rob. The spot in the gorse is certainly overtopped by ground inside the compound but it all looks artificial||Colin Crawford||29/01/2017|
|Did a cicuit from the new estate. Top is in gorse SW side of enclosure.||chrisbien||26/03/2016|
|Parked in the new housing scheme and walked via the excellent community woodland paths to the bedrock top some 30meters NE of the electric fence.||Play2End||30/12/2014|
|Parked in cemy car park and walked up road and along track. Could've driven along very pot-holed track to summit 'car-park'. Extremely well defended summit; 8 ft high metal pallisade fence surrounding an 11 ft high electric fence. A thrash through the tall (but dead vegetation on my visit) around the perimeter is the best that's going to be achieved here. Unless the gate is open for work in progress when you visit.||Minto||29/03/2014|
