|Logged Descriptions (logged by 37 users)||By||Date of Ascent|
|Parked at the road junction to the NW and followed a forestry track that is unmapped. This brought us to a track that is on the map and we followed tracks to the summit. We continued to Beacon Hill, following a track towards the col and easily ascending the wall,before a short walk to the summit. We descended straight to the car, via fields. With JT.||Sprog||05/01/2019|
|Solo. Parked at start of access track to mast at NX915776. After ascending See Morris Hill. Went up along forest tracks to summit of White Hill of Terregles. The highest point is on the east side of a track and has a minute cairn of three small stones. Continued southwards on a track and through a gap in the trees to the wall at the boundary of the forest. The wall is easily climbed, then on rough pasture to summit of Beacon Hill. Descended by going down the pasture to the road.||pwbellarby||12/11/2017|
|P junct to NW, on to N top.||agentmancuso||28/05/2017|
|Parked on grassy island at road junction to NW then fields to summit. Tops of trees on White Hill of Terregles to N significantly higher by Abney - nice forest track from just beyond col to its summit.||RichardM||10/02/2017|
|Parked at road Junction to north west then ascended easily over pasture to obvious low rock outcrop at summit. Some evidence of ancient fortifications. Nice views . We looked north to the forest where the OS spot height point 211m looked of similar height. We descended to the col then followed forest tracks marked on 1:25 map to this high point, which our GPS said was similar ie within accuracy error. As there is no line of sight within the conifer forest an Abney level cannot be used.||Denise||10/02/2017|
|Parked at the farm, explaining 'I am climbing Beacon Hill' Look of puzzlement - I guess it must have a local name (or none at all). Views from the top confirm why this gets the name 'Beacon'
Saw my first Easter bunny - with a white stripe along its back - all the way from its neck to its tail.
There are only two Scottish beacon hills, named as such, in the 'bagging' list - and just 10 miles or so apart. Border country.||M3WDD||25/03/2016|
