From Corriedow/Glenjaan road end.duchally02/07/2019
Solo trip from the Dalwhat Water side, definitely the pretty way compared with the wind farm track.Invicta1423/05/2019
From Martour Hill followed the wind farm tracks close to the summit. Descended directly to the car at 714950. 3 hours solo including Martourbolton06/05/2019
A lovely walk (until the summit) from the Glenjaan road end, where there is a good parking spot just down the track. Over Corriedow bridge, then through the field gate to a mast. Up to a gate, where an ATV track starts up the side of the unnamed stream. Up this to a shelf, then contoured NW below Corriedow Hill over the 2 streams, hopped the wall easily (it's quite low) and contoured to the gap between the 460m and 470m tops. On the ATV track, then cut across to follow the wall up to a gate, then on to the bloody awful wind farm with its track encircling the summit. The cairn is tiny and the views would be fabulous except for the turbines everywhere you look. So glad I took the scenic route and not the wind farm track, lovely in the snow with all wet bits frozen.Gill02/02/2019
From Yellow Craig (Private in case you miss the signs) up the wind farm access track to the summit of Wether Hill. Track out to firebreak on Martour Hill with decent trod to just beyond summit and push into fairly light tree cover. Returned same way.SS29/12/2018
From the SW gate that says Yellow crag Is also the wind farm entrance track. This can be a drive up near to the top. Useful as the weather had turned a bit grimmer and the daylight left was diminishing.vegibagger22/11/2018
From the B729, through forestry then joins the turbine service roads. Left the service road at turbine 14, crossed the fence. Summit cairn one stone high. Rain and mist.borderterrier13/10/2018
3 of 7 today. Almost a drive-up: the wind farm can be accessed from a track at approx 684912 on the B729. Several gates, but no locks in evidence. Good track accessible in a Vauxhall Corsa.PGCE25/09/2018
On graded road from B729 at NX684912. Operated ham radio for SOTA on summit wind farm. No interference from the turbines.G4OBK (Phil)20/08/2018
From Corriedow road end. At summit cloud cleared for views. Back down via the trig on Corriedow Hill.NormanW18/04/2018
Late afternoon walk from start of track near Corridow. Up through field and onto ridgeline. Easy going to the wind farm around the summit.N.Morters28/10/2016
The windfarm access road was a grim plod on a very wet and windy afternoon.Chris Peart24/07/2016
Lodge/windfarm road access. Dry, cold calm and good views.iangalbraith31/03/2016
From the SSW at first light, up the windfarm tracks and back down before the heavy rain set in. Unusually mild for the time of year.Topographer5718/12/2015
Certainly had some weather today! Hugely snowy. Made more exciting by the local pheasant/ duck shoot who we encountered twice.jenx12/12/2015
With Jenx walking up the lodge road. Had to contend with a bird shoot/murder session, heavy snow and a GOML like experience, as apparently 'Diane' doesn't like anyone near her house. Still we baggef the hill and trig in foul weather. Story of the winter so far it seems in 2015.nordicstar12/12/2015

With Mark T. The car was parked at NX7184691678, in the entrance to the track 100m from the track to Craiglearach. Good hill spoilt by wind farm.Sprog17/12/2011
A superb viewpoint ruined by a windfarm. Ascent via Corriedow, which has a trig that's not actually at the summit of anything.Aye Jimmy24/07/2011
neil hutton07/11/2008
Over swollen stream over swampy pastures and steadily up to artificial horizons one by one. Gate in long stone wall. Long mile by disintegrating stone wall and 600m to top. 14.20.arranc28/10/2002
