|Parked at double gates||hillsman||04/03/2020|
|Parked in space by redundant bermed off gate south of Cocklaw, but headed to Bellscraig, Biggar and Pisgah Hill first. From Pisgah via Skirling, the old drove road and Elsrickle to the double gates. Easy ride up to summit fort through labeled Christmas trees. Hail at summit and someone had had a fire nearby. Quick descent of ridge to car. Very easy.||fasgadh||26/10/2019|
|P at double gates to S and easy plod up through tree farm. Fine fort||Thearlaichdubh||17/12/2018|
|Handy P by the comedy signs at NT 04826 42605. Easy to follow gaps through tree farm to top. Agree that the tree & gate combo looks better, but the mapped fort is the top, not that it's visible on the ground.||agentmancuso||27/01/2018|
|from the south parked at double gates, tracks up through christmas trees.||robertphillips||23/12/2017|
|From roadway a choice of forrest tracks lead up to the summit through tree plantations. Summit situated above tree line to the west.||Steve511||07/07/2017|
|Two possible candidates. Obvious knoll to south probably wins but the lone tree with redundant gate is in with a chance.||Colin Crawford||15/02/2015|
|P SE of hill. Grassy track through Christmas tree plantation to open flat top.||chrisbien||30/09/2013|
