|Up from Torphin. Nice wee walk.||sclater||02/02/2020|
|From Torphin. Along the path to Easter Kinleith, detouring to the hill about half way along, then returning via the disused golf course. Superb views to Edinburgh and the Forth.||summitter||03/01/2020|
|Up from Torphin Road from water pipeline construction works. Pass a couple of CCTV cameras into the site of a recently closed golf course. Good paths lead to just east of the summit, where the derelict land gives way to sheep pasture. Very fine viewpoint. Return via steep descent to path on the north side.||fasgadh||24/07/2019|
|Parked at End of Torphin Road, through gate to Easter Kinleith and followed track/path west then south then east to the top.
Blowing a ‘hoolie’ on top today but rather good views.||Jubilado||27/01/2019|

|From ne, Torphin, as others. Nice easy scenic walk||RHW||11/12/2016|
|No 10 bus from West End to Torphin, then walk along side of quarry until gorse diminished enough to head up to the ridge with its fine mast. A large tree obscures the view over Edinburgh but I could see the 2.95 Forth bridges rising above the mist on the Forth. A <2 hour round trip from the West End.||Thearlaichdubh||05/12/2016|
|I drove along Woodhall Road, then robbed Woodhall Bank before turning into Torphin Road to park before using the right of way to gain the sheep pasture to the west of the quarry. No walls or fences were climbed to bag this TUMP.||Dugswell2||14/02/2015|
|walk from the road end and then turn left and up.||Adrian||14/02/2015|
|Quick route on track from west through muddy farmyard, well used by walkers, no problem (met farmer), but would be a better walk from east. Good viewpoint.||alda||08/01/2015|
|P Torphin. Along path then steeply up by wall to Aerial mast and summit a little SW.||chrisbien||31/08/2014|
