From Drumalbin - lots and lots of mud and cows to contend with.summitter13/12/2018
Parking as for Black Hill and then W to cross fields. Lots of fairly menacing cows so keep close to a dyke.Thearlaichdubh11/09/2018
from parking at a gate to the south, 3 fences to cross to the top.robertphillips01/02/2018
Bagged Drumalbin FB then summit then Drumalbin gatepost cutmark on the way to Stone Hill. Hat bagged this hill in my youth while helping at Drumalbin with John, Ann and Libby Bannatyne.Dugswell227/12/2015
From SW, Drumalbin, via the Active station, the Tump fiddly to get toRHW09/05/2015
Straight up from road to south. Electric fences to negotiate. The mud's still there.Colin Crawford04/03/2015
As agent except straightforward due to no cows or crops until I reached the summit field which was a mud bath (hopefully mud but it smelt like something else).chrisbien25/01/2015
Parking by the Drumalbin FB then up past the Active Station. Slightly tricky after that owing to wheatfields and awkwardly placed gates, but got there in the end.agentmancuso16/08/2014
