Parked at end of forest road to SE and pleasant diagonal walk to small gate and up the edge of forest. Sniffed around in the trees in search of a higher point but couldn't find one.Thearlaichdubh26/12/2018
Self. One reason why I ascended this hill was to find out what was reflecting the sun at the summit. Found out it was wooden pallets that were bleached white by the sun and which were used as part of a fence. A good view.Bobf06/10/2018
Same route as ChrisColin Crawford22/08/2017
Bagged as YSM174 Carcant Hill. First of the day, good forest track most of the way up then a fire break with a very sinky middle. Went over gate, wall and under electric fence for no reason as trig is on forest side of wall!thejackrustles28/04/2017
From Dod Law, followed track down W side and forded Heriot Water. Along drive to first gate and straight up.agentmancuso28/12/2016
Track to gate. Then up along side of fence and wall.chrisbien03/07/2016
Rain stopped just as I set off from the car. Followed the forestry track NW to the edge of the woodland and then straight up the hill from the fence. Pentland hills came into view just before the top and then 3 sodding great windmills then appeared, great place for them - why not put some more here numbskulls. A nice walk spoiled IMHO.Walker Dan18/11/2015
