From fisherman's layby to SE.David Bremner26/10/2019
with Andy'Mr Boom'Munro. Heathens had banked rubble up round the trig pillar. Judiciously removed to the east side all the ones on its west face to re-reveal the Flush Bracket and let it breathe again. the trig top'd face changed from, 'Ooooh I hate having my FB covered',to 'Smiling happiness'vegibagger12/12/2018

From S.jimbloomer18/02/2016
Approached this beautiful little hill via the village of Thankerton with its picturesque humpback bridge over the River Clyde. Parked in layby on Shieldhill Road on the banks of the Clyde about half a mile from the village and began ascent up the North East slopes. Ascent only takes a short while though the slopes can be a bit steep in places. Great view from the top with its Trig Point and cairn. There is also evidence of Iron age fortifications around the summit. Weather was sunny with excellent visibility.Steve51127/02/2013
Ascent from the south.fasgadh12/05/2010
