|From the minor road to the east. To the trig via the cut forest and back via the pasture. Don't ask why?||Play2End||05/02/2017|

|I walked up from Penicuik and through the gate at Upper Firth, NT264588. From the summit, down to the ESE. No barbed wire, no farmer, no forest. I'm not sure that RHW has the right hill...||Pete R||13/05/2015|
|Lorry in Minto's parking however there was enough verge to park by gate to field (central). Nice field (very dry given the weather. Top might be bump a little S of trig.||chrisbien||05/01/2015|
|Parking at 'layby' on minor road to E, 50 N of S edge of 'forest'. The forest shown on map looks as though it was felled years ago.||Minto||04/12/2014|
|I'd forgotten the forest was gone, so ended up coming at it diagonally from ENE, which was a pretty useless way of going about it, except as a reminder that 'clearfell' is self-contradictory term. Much easier just heading along the field edge to the road.||agentmancuso||19/11/2011|
|pleasant easy hill, fine view. quarry layby/stile 223317, direct via Black Hill crags gap||RHW||26/12/2004|
