From Crookburn Bridge on way to Burnhope Seat. Sunny with soft snow, but no sign of bogs!Winterfloodian07/01/2018
Parked on B6277 to the south, and made my way up to the E of Long Gill Sike but never found the Ski Tows on the OS map. Headed for the summit, and found the small pile of stones in the mist / low cloud. Decided to bail out for the day.madaddo09/07/2017
on ridge walk from Burnhope Seat to Great Stony Hill- see Burnhope Seat for log of walk. Unusually dry underfoot made this entire high level section very pleasantpwheeler06/05/2017
Peat hags everywhere, remarkably beautiful view on clear day but better in welly boots really. Probably grim if wet. 3rd of day. Solo.Tom D07/04/2017
Started at Burnhope Resorvoir parking on the NE end of dam. Walked along N side of resorvoir to the far western end. Took track leading up the hill side to Green Laws and Highwatch Currick. Battled with into the wind to Dead Stones and into the low cloud. Welcome stop in the shelter on Dead Stones before continuing to south to Burnhope Seat, Scraith Head, Harwood Common, Scaud Hill finishing on Great Stony Hill. I returned via the rough track down to Grasshill Causeway and the resorvoir.axe.stephen19/02/2017

3rd peak of day on wet and misty day followed Nuttalls route although due to lack of visibilty followed fence all the way from Great Stony Hill to just N of this peakcelticrambler02/04/2015
Nuttall walk 10.1. Failed to find the mine track they mention so had to weave in and out of the haggs. Stick to fence it's easier.mick13/09/2014

Nuttall's route although difficult to follow. The stick that is slightly split in the website photo was on the ground by the pile of stones so I knew I was in the right place.clivevilla02/09/2012

Along fence from Great Stony Hill, very wet in places but not as bad as I expected.nevans8430/08/2011
Followed the Nuttalls' route. It is very dry at the moment, so the going is easy - I would advise going to do these now! (Or next time it's dry... Would be awful after a wet period!) With DadAGWilliamson30/07/2011
Stok Kangri Reunion. A bit of a plod this one, but then my back was hurting and I was feeling sorry for myself.ruthatlast16/07/2011
I took previous visitors advice and came up on a hot day in the driest summer for years. Even then this summitt has nothing to recommend it. Small cain on top. I visited it twice, once on way out and once on way back.Father Ted03/07/2011

As Nuttall route except Three Pikes which is one top too many on this fairly horrendous bog trot. My advice is to do it after a dry spell in the middle of summer!David Gradwell09/10/2010
Cold wintery day - wet underfoot, strong icy winds and blustery showers with sleat. Some great little stone lined mine shafts to look down (careful not to fall in) on the SE slopes below this Nuttall.andrew larkins28/03/2010

Overcast all day, dry cool breeze on tops, As Nuttall's guide book but started near the gate up the road, rather than going through gates to road over Burnhope reservoir dam.joseph mitchell18/09/2009
