Up by new track through Old Caberston forest. Then on to Cairn HillColin Crawford22/09/2017
New track from S. Through gates just W of Pyat Hill and up to top. They are extending the track up S of the fence and wall.chrisbien16/07/2017
A round of Gate Hope: Stony Knowe, Seathope Law, Maiden Law, Windlestraw Law, Bareback Knowe, Scawd Law, Cairn Hill and Early Knowe. Pleasant walking on a day of swirling cloud and sun. Erno Rubik designed the gates hereabouts: don't even think of opening them with gloved hands. A coil of wire mesh at the corner of the wall at 370384 can be rolled back to gain access to the western slopes of Early Knowe.Nick Down121/05/2017
