From the road junction to the west. Missed a path and almost reached Arnbathie. Then south to the edge of the crags, west until a path down appeared. At the base, west again to where the Goddens track crosses the burn.Pete R09/02/2019

From road to Shanty. Misty, but occasional partial weather windows through which views were good.ger04/09/2017
From gate on Kilspjndie Road, over stiles to Trig summit. Smashing views.summitter20/08/2017
Via Shien Hill.Chris Peart23/05/2017
Solo trip. Surrounded by dog-proof fences (unless you can lift your dog over the baebed wire).Invicta1403/05/2017
From good space for parking by gate at road summit above Evelick (GR: 197265). I followed the fence, accessed through the gate and along a track shown on the map, that runs roughly SE then turns SW, finding a plank across a very boggy dip and stiles over the barbed wire fence. With a trod through the heather and fine views over the Firth of Tay, this was a nice way to spend half an hour, albeit on an unassuming hillpwheeler25/03/2017
Parked at 197265. Stiles over BW fences at 19606 26281.NormanW18/03/2017
Cool sunny breezy day, unexpectedly met Smudge and joined him for ascent. En route to Shetland in new car.Denise 17/04/2016
Perth Airport to Scone. Chance meeting with Richard & Denise Mclellan before starting along track from NO166261 which turned out to lack continuity (fence climbing required) after Shien Hill.Smudge17/04/2016
Approach by wet and indistinct farm tracks from the W then grassy field to summit topped by trig point on grassy mound / tumulus? Unexpected company of Smudge having met him setting off from the road.RichardM17/04/2016
From high point on minor road to the east.robertphillips15/11/2015
Gate,stile then trig on sunny afternoon.Dugswell229/07/2015
Cracking day for a pair of HuMPs and a few wee ones too.Alex C11/04/2015
From near high point of road to E. Gate into field. Aim for top left hand corner - small stile over fence. Summit "fence" marked on OS 1:25K map looks like an old ditch around the summmit - which looks man-made too.Minto19/11/2011
Short ascent from the road. There is a stile on the top left hand side of the field that gets you on to the moor. Great views, as usual for the Sidlaws.fasgadh25/07/2010
