Ward Law, Woodycleuch Dod, Hudderstone, Windgate Bank (camped near summit), Duncangill Head, Whitelaw Brae, Hardrig Head, Broad Hill from minor road to N. Dry and bright at times.RobertP05/05/2018
Used the new pedestrian motorway from Hillshaw. Enjoyed the shaows of the wind turbine baldes on the ground. Company: Soloiandesbottes07/01/2018
From the Cowgill Road, 400 yards SW of Windgill. A circuit of the Cowgill reservoirs: Ward Law - Woodycleuch Dod - Hudderstone, Windgate Bank - Duncangill Hardrig Head and back by Smallgill Rig and the Cowgill Upper Reservoir Dam. Swirling icy mist largely hiod the brutalist wind turbines, then gave way to afternoon sunshine, bathing the surrounding snowy hills in pink. Hard going through soft, often knee-deep snow.Nick Down116/12/2017
Walked in from the A702 at Wandel. The wind farm has been significantly extended and the track goes all the way to Hudderstone and well beyond.benalder28401/12/2017

With Alfie & Ian Soulsby. Down ridge over Cowgill Rig (468m) to van. Spacious parking on grass where track meets the road.Dangerous Dave17/12/2016
A day spent bagging several tops. Its been a few years since I walked in this area. Its quite a shock to see the undignified spread of wind turbines with yet more tracks being bulldozed in order to site more. So RIP the Southern Uplands, your beauty and uniqueness has been raped and plundered.thenomad22/05/2016
With usual Monday walkers, J, Grays, Frank and Arthur, from P at Windgill,nr. Cuter Allers farm, up track, onto ATV track up to summit; return via Cowgill Rig. Good weather.jacobus12/10/2015

Long walk across to this hill from the rest on this round, but quite a quick descent back to the reservoir afterwards.nickywood116/08/2015
Solo; walked from nr. Birthwood Farm, S of Coulter, SE/S over Ward Law and Woodycleuch Dod to summit. Returned NW/N/NE over Cowgill Hill. Bright day, sunny intervals but cold SW wind. Repeated this walk, except for using an atv track, off rough track, which led almost to summit of Ward Law, 12/10/2015, with J, Grays, Frank and Arthur; fine day's walking.trienbrae03/06/2015

MC A round of 5 peaks in 3h55m. The extended route from Hudderstone would be very wet after rain. As it was, very hot and very dry.Martin6615/07/2013

Third visit (previous in August 2008) during a circuit of Cowgill.fasgadh08/05/2012
As a circular route round Coulter Reservoir, via Culter Fell, Gathersnow Hill and Hillshaw Head. Hudderstone decidedly more impressive than Hillshaw Head. Unmarked summit (as far as I could see) a few hundred metres beyond a radio mast.milngavie_kenny02/01/2012

Followed road from Birthwood Farm to Cowgill reservoirs. Took track on right leading up past top of plantation. Followed ridge then headed SE up HYudderstone .derekblackburn23/10/2010
Good access track gently on tarmac for 2 miles, before a faint buggy track made easy going over dry tussock. By fence and around to S to top at 16.15, No cairn.arranc05/04/2009

An excellent round of the hills above Culter Water with Shaky. Parked just past the farm then along the track for a short way taking the side track along King's Beck for a short way before joining the obvious path up NW ridge of Culter Fell. Then followed boundary over Moss Law, an out & back to Coomb Hill, Gathersnow Hill, Hillshaw Head, an out & back to Coomb Dod & then NW to Hudderstone. Dropped steeply E in failing light to the Coulter Reservoir & the private road back out. Started sunny but clouded over just before the top of Culter Fell although we got a view from all of the lower hills.NotReallyABagger28/12/2006
Dry, windy, partly sunny, good views, with Tony and Pam.iangalbraith11/12/2005
Up from Camps Reservoir. This was meant to be just a short evening walk with F on the way to Rosetta campsite at Peebles but on the way downhill I remembered I'd forgotten to put the sleeping bags in the car, so after trying a few B&Bs unsuccessfully (Bank Holiday weekend...) we had to head for home. Not popular.agentmancuso04/05/2002
