|Parked at end of yellow road to W, but should have driven to triangular park area. Crossed brand new fence into the Quarry area and road turns right into newly cleared and replanted forest area. Not too
difficult to walk up the edge of this felled area to high point at edge of the main quarry.||GordonAdshead||07/07/2019|
|Similar route to Rob. I met a digger driver on the felled area but he wasn't bothered about my presence||Colin Crawford||21/03/2019|
|From SW, road jct, thru recently felled plantation, cairned HP on brink of quarry. Then to Brotherstone||RHW||20/01/2019|
|All quiet in the quarry today so could do a full circuit of the rim. Conifers around the west and being felled.||Adrian||01/01/2019|
|White, Black, Redpath and Brotherstone hills from Earlston via paths and fields on a lovely sunny cold Winter's day. S face of Black hill is heavily gorsed. Redpath hill is being felled and is a mess. The quarry is fantastic with the hp on the very rim.||Thearlaichdubh||10/12/2018|
|P near track to The Park. Got left a note not to. Track to Park Quarry and into trees. S of top the fence halves in height so easily crossed. Back to main track past Redpath Moss and through fields to BHW and visited the fort which is about 1m lower.||chrisbien||07/07/2018|
|The SE edge of the quarry must be almost as high.||Pete R||16/09/2017|
