From Knock of Balmyle. Views not as good as from the Knock, because of trees restricting views NW to NE through N. Heather in bloom.ger02/09/2017

The Jim Bloomer way. Much easier from West. Park just before Tomlea farm at 260m, then good track and fields to trig top. Short descent to col then summit. Back at car within the hour.nordicstar13/01/2016
Decided to go from the West and this was a nice walk. Parked just before Tomlea farm. Walked to left of cattle sheds on route signed with yellow arrow. Straightforward from there.jenx13/01/2016
Solo, from the E.amswanston05/12/2015
Up the forest track to the loch. Newly felled trees made it difficult to the open ground. Back to the main road parallel to the forest. Not easy, especially through the 'cliffs of doom'.Play2End30/10/2015
Climbed up from the A93 in a WNW direction then off to bag the trig on the TUMP Knock of Balmyle.Dugswell217/10/2015
En route from Manchester to Braemar, from NO 138 563. Rough but dry. Discovered that the 'Clash' near the summit can be negotiated easily by going through the wood. A warm day - trainers were fine for this 1 hour 45 minute walk.Phreerunner25/04/2015

Wet Jog from Percie House with KatyGeorge Thompson27/05/2013
Solo. Parked off road at start of track to Dalnabreck. Used track to Muir of Merklands and then a rough track to a small artificial lochan. Up hillside to summit of Knock of Balmyle where there is a trig point. On to Hill of Persie. A wall goes over summit.pwbellarby28/11/2012
Started from where used to be AA phonebox. Followed wall to summit. Bit of a mistake as that involved bog and a surprise crag (really must look at a map before setting off, not just after, mustn't I?) Avoided bog and crag coming down. Well some of the bog. Sure the way past Persie Mains is easier, although longer. The track is longer than the 1:50 map implies.Martin R21/11/2012
Straightforward ascent from A93, following edge of forest, but avoiding the rough ground nearest to it.JohnW29/10/2005
On faint beaten path by wall bordering the forest. Primroses everywhere. Got view of hill, heather getting thicker and a long detour to south to by-pass a 50' sheer drop at head of stream. Over wire fence and on grassy bits to top at 15.00.arranc19/04/2003
