Solo. From car park at NO022437 to the north of Dunkeld. After ascending Crieff Hill and Deuchary Hill West Top. I descended northwards to join the track going towards Deuchary Hill near the outfall of Lochan na Beinne. Followed the track and the continuation path to the summit of Deuchary Hill reaching the trig point and scrambling up the rib of rock which is the highest point. Decided to descend on the path and track that goes NW and then on the track S to the starting point, so avoiding the thick heather. Nice dry and sunny weather.pwbellarby20/08/2017

Deuchary Hill Race CraigW29/03/2015
A great day climbing a wee craggy gem of a Sub-2000. Climbed on a clear winters day with snow underfoot, brought ice axe but didn't need it, the going was slow without walking poles so my daylight hours where spent on this one hill and had no time for other hills I'd planned to climb that day. trig at top, but the real summit is a wee rocky wedge a short distance from the trig easy to spot and scramble upon. A good day in Dunkeld.Victorious KWS13/12/2014

Major pipe construction a bit intrusive. However turned out a pleasant surprise as the expected trudge through a pine plantation didn't happen. A delightful summit with an interesting puzzle searching for it.Martin R28/12/2011

Climbed this hill many, many times over the years while on holiday at Countlich Bungalow. First ascent was in 1987 when I was 7 years old with parents and Grandpa and this was probably my first Marilyn. I sat on an adder on the way down!islamidget01/07/1988
