A long walk through from Cramalt parking spot at Loch Megget to Glenrath Farm. With B and R. Lucky to be blown along by a southerly wind.jenx21/04/2019
Between this and Shielhope some good views up Manorhead. Had to deviate from fence to claim this peak, felt very daring...... Company: Soloiandesbottes25/03/2019
From Megget Reservoir car park out by track then angling up around 540m mark. Returned closer to fence line then to high point on tack and back to car. Storm on the way.SS03/03/2019
From Black Law. Dropped off the S slopes of Redsike Head to reach the track just NE of Greenside Law (this was rough ground-it would be better to stay on top of Redsike Head to reach the track at the high point). Crossed the track and headed directly for the summit. Descended the E shoulder to the good track back to Craigierig, and the car parked at the Megget Dam.LizH14/02/2019
Last day of a New Year week in Peebles. Parked where the RoW leading to the Megget Reservoir leaves the Manorhead road. Space for about 3 cars. Enjoyed a very easy stroll up to the pile of stones marking the high point of the RoW. An ATV track/path leads easily W to the summit of Greenside Law. Back to the RoW making a short detour for the S summit. The next bit was much easier than it looked. A path leads E to a shed & then continues faintly down Black Rig to cross the burn at about NT212259. Paths rise beside a stream coming to an ATV track passing underneath Conscleuch Head & straight to Deer Law. Switchbacked along the fenceline over Conscleuch Head to Black Law summit. Returned to SW top of Black Law & followed fence WSW to pt598m on Redsike Head. Faint sheep tracks slanted down easily W to rejoin the RoW back to the start. Cold & overcast but with decent views except for Dollar Law which was firmly stuck in cloud all day. A good round when the ground is frozen.NotReallyABagger04/01/2019
Round of 4 Donalds anti-clockwise from small parking area below Manorhead. Mostly easy walking and drying out nicely underfoot except for a boggy section between Greenside and Black Law.AndrewFinnimore17/05/2018

Horse Hope Hill - Blackhouse Heights - Black Law - Black Law SW top - Conscleuch Hill - Deer Law - Greenside Law. Started from just S of Langhaugh at approx 8.30pm, climbing steep slopes to reach col and tussocky climb to Horsehope Hill and pitch tent close to summit. In morning continued S along broad ridge to Deer Law and then W to Greenside Law. Descent to path back to glen and short road walk back to car on hot sunny day.RobertP18/06/2017
Parked at bridge next to N end of forest after white house approaching Manorhead. J and I walked down road to join RofW leading to Megget; went L around stand of trees and had to go through trees and across burn to re-join track which was very wet and muddy, more so in the dip S of Redsike Head where we were paddling. We abandoned track, taking bearing 240 alongside fence and up hill to reach summit (small ring still there, noted on my first visit on 07/07/2015, during round of Black Law and Dollar Law). Jackie decided to leave DL for another day, so we re-traced uphill route to descend, pausing near the dip for lunch. Weather was fine all day.jacobus20/03/2017

15.8 Mile walk in perfect weather from parking area near Kirkhope Burn, walked along road to end and up good footpath to ridge across boggy col and up to Greenside Law, across head of Manor Valley on track to Notman Law, out to Cramalt Craig, and back along to Fifescar Knowe then Dollar Law, down a long way and back up to pathetic lump of Long Grain Knowe, out and back to Middle Hill, then along ridge continuation to Grey Weather Law, Pykestone Hill and The Scrape, descended to car via Posso Craig passing very strange and unused trig point down bottom of Northey Knowe hillside. Terrain very easy like walking on a carpet all the way. No people anywhere.DanTrig14/05/2016
