Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log: Can't remember exactly where we parked and started for this but (however route on attached screenshot) we took forest tracks for as long as we could and ended up at the base of the crags NX 63287 73182 (only shown on 1:25k). Mr TJR and the boys were ahead of me and took a route straight up, I sadly walked along the crags looking for a way up only finding one at the end at roughly NX 62923 73468. Found this last section a little tough. However when I got the top I was rewarded with the best view - loved it!thejackrustles10/05/2019
3rd and final tump of the day on a route from Mossdale to New Galloway. 1st Waterside Hill out and back then Bennan Hill followed by an awkward link through mossy larch trees to a track then to the end before climbing up via outcrops/slabs and tussocky ground. Top is quite atmospheric and marked by a trig pillar. Difficult descent via one ride with steep outcrops then a track then a forest ride that wasn't;eventually on tracks to the road continuing to New Gaìloway.Dazingdale19/10/2018
same route as mae woods track then up through trees.robertphillips16/12/2017
From small CP at NX645742. Easy woodland then path following east side of Lowran Burn to NX644737, then forest tracks and off-piste ascent as described by others.mae17/08/2016
From the forestry track to the east then up through tussocks and around outcrops. Much easier walking in the forest than in the forest breakborderterrier14/11/2015
After the Bennan hill subhump this turned out to be almost walk in the park by comparison. This is despite the howling gale and lashin rain, the long tedious forest track, the number of fallen trees in the forest and the lack of a clear path. From Bennan view car park NX65262 72367 there are forest tracks as far as NX 63282 73207 - either enter the trees there and follow the forest edge or stay outside the trees and follow the same edge before picking a way up through the crags to the summit.Martin R14/12/2013
Parked at Bennan viewpoint CP. Followed track to CEH. Hard going through the forest (didn't find the firebreak).chrisbien16/10/2010
