Better than expected. Good all round views.hillsman19/03/2018
Parked at car park at canal side. Followed towpath a short distance then over a stile onto a path heading left. Round the first slope the path turns right up the steepish slope to a plateau from which you can choose from a variety of routes to the top. Followed a different set of paths down to emerge between large tree trunks opposite the car parkJubilado01/02/2018

Parked near the entrance to Philpstoun Bing South. Then across the canal bridge bagging its cut mark then down and round to towpath then up Philpstoun Bing North. A fine view point even on a damp grey afternoon. Return to car then bagged Philpstoun Bing South.Dugswell216/09/2017
Chaotic spoil heaps from former oil shale works. Scope for planning a small but testing orienteering event here- with tricky route choices on the semi mobile steep sided slopes - up and over , around,or slip sliding contouring . Only had time for this one bing as airport check in not to be missed.Chris Pearson07/06/2017
Dodged the motorbikes and started a small summit cairn for future baggers.summitter05/03/2017

Walked from Linlithgow along the towpath and up from carpark to E. Pleasanter than PB SouthThearlaichdubh14/12/2016
From E, canal car park, cross road to path which contours past a couple of bumps to grassy highpoint. Colourful bing scenery. Recompletes West Lothian for me.RHW12/12/2015
