Parked by the church in Eddleston at 243472 - Up alongside wall & then track/tarmac road to Boreland - NE along track before heading up to gate at 260483 - Up track & then, keeping to left side of wall, well-used ATV track across W. flank of Brown Dod & up to the summit cairn. Continued to Bowbeat Hill. (S)gerrybowes19/03/2019
07.50 bus from Edinburgh to Eddleston. In bright sunshine with snow on the ground, up past the kirk and along to Boreland Farm. Across the field behind the farm diagonally uphill to gate by strip of forestry. Straight up by the trees to summit of Milky Law. Over to stone wall then followed this towards Brown Dod, taking track around to the east side. In the snow, unable to find direct path towards Dundreich marked on map so headed to top of Brown Dod and then direct to top of Dundreich. Came down via ATV track across spur, steep in parts, linking up with farm track to Boreland and then to Eddleston. An absolute treat!the pigguy 02/02/2019

From Gladhouse Res out to cottage and up Hirendean Hill. Very dry making going good to Blackhope Scar by fence from The Kipps. Then across to wind farm and Bowbeat Hill before taking atv track towards Dundreich (bit of heather bashing but not bad). Return by Jeffries Corse and good track to Gladhouse Cottage.SS08/07/2018
Small carpark (and nice campervan spot) by Gladhouse Reservoir. Good track south then up onto plateau. ATV track disappears leaving some tricky ground across to summit eg boggy, tussocky plus a few peat hags for added fun! Then over to Bowbeat.AndrewFinnimore20/02/2018
From Eddlestone and Boreland Farmbenalder28410/12/2017
Solo;P at Moorfoot Farm, walking S on track E of River South Esk to end, then ascending zigzag track/atv path. Followed to end on ridge far too far S, 0.5 km from start of Wind Farm - way off planned route and had to go NW over boggy and rough terrain to reach trig on D. Retraced SE to windfarm track and continued round to Bowbeat Hill. Weather improved from high mist in morning to glimpses of sun in afternoon.jacobus07/11/2017

Moorfoot round.ngthack12/09/2015
Walk from Gladhouse Reservoir for a round to Blackhope Scar. Quite rough under foot in parts, windfarm tracks further round were helpful, but would rather not have the farms personally.nickywood104/05/2015
Walked up from Eddleston through Boreland Farm. A steep pull up quad tracks saw me on top. Stunning Views. Have wanted to do this hill for 50 years. Finally made it. Took in the Northshield Rings on the way back.BigJ15/03/2015
some sunshine, fine views.Adrian26/04/2014
An afternoon round of three tops in decent weather after morning rain. No problems with route though I did manage to slip on a rock crossing the stream at the end and went in up to my thighs - not really that deep but I was not stranding up!dickscroop04/04/2014
Solo. After ascending Blackhope Scar, Bowbeat Hill and Bowbeat Rig Head. From latter followed wind farm track to its end and then up hillside NW to summit cairn of Dundreich.
