Pity about the rubbish around the bing but a fine viewpointhillsman15/08/2019
Parked just S of Glaikhead, bing side of road, where track heads to the bing. As noted, lots of rubbish, but a great view from the summit.Minto30/06/2019
Park at entrance. A fine bing. Should put Coalburn on the map.Thearlaichdubh24/12/2018
A spoil tip which nature is reclaiming for a nice amenity hill. It will be even better when they remove and prevent local fly dumping.Topographer5702/09/2018

As Chris. Still a mess at the bottom, but enjoyable on top.agentmancuso04/03/2017
Parked to the WNW then used a direct route to the bing's summit. It still looks an artificial hill to me but it does make a grand view point even on a grey morning.Dugswell228/12/2016
