From the Shillingland road triangle, a nice firm parking spot. Along the tarmac to the cattle grid, then up grass, through a ruined wall and to a cairn, to pick up a grassy, frozen ATV track leading to the top. Remarkably good views, with relatively few wind farms.Gill30/01/2019

Not nice. ATV track indistinct (well I missed it anyway), ended up too far west on the way up and too far east on the way down. Featureless hill with unpleasant footing. Forestry at the top has been felled.Owen B04/11/2016

With Jenx from the junction of minor road and Shillingland farm, park in the triangle made by the junction. 200 yards up farm road at its high point an ATV track goes up the hill at a small quarry and can be followed direct to the summit. A grey day before the rain, good skies over the Solway.nordicstar08/11/2015
Parked to the east of the Shillingland road where there is a wide space. Found a quad track 200 yards up the farm road which gave a reasonable ascent. Solo in 65 minutes.bolton14/08/2015
