Came here after Roseberry Topping - the path from the east isn't particularly welcoming and I'd suggest you access via the holiday park. Explored all three tops, but I think the westernmost one is the highest point.Richard05/01/2020
Parked near entrance to Whin Stone view and took PROW through grounds. Walked up east ridge over high point along field boundary south of wood and onto top of west ridge which I plumped for being the high point next to fence. Resisted temptation to go in to wood as private property though now notice there is a contour ring inside boundary. O well if later decided that is high point will have to return. For now sticking with info on hill-bagging.SteveSmith06/12/2019
From loop in road to SW, as others. Footbridge easy to spot now.jonglew06/09/2019
From the lay-by. Followed ngthack’s excellent directions through Whinstone View, then explored the three tops, including a far western top just beyond the field boundary at the western edge of the field reached by the FP after the bridge. The eastern top appears lowest, but I’m not sure whether the ridge at the southern edge of the copse on the western top, or the raised hedge st the northern edge of the copse on the far western top is higher.Nick Down126/08/2019
Ran from near Captain Cook's Monument, and Cliff Rigg, then to Nunthorpe & back through Newton under Roseberry.stever23/07/2019
Visited both bumps.PGCE21/07/2019
Parked in layby and eventually found the correct gate with the roundel on it. The gr seems to be the western top with the eastern one at 55324 12275. Visited both anyway.clivevilla10/09/2018
As ngthack. After crossing the little footbridge it turns into a very pleasant woodland walk.Campbell Singer22/05/2018
Ascent from just north of Swans Corner Roundabout, through paths and woodland.mrs_ts725/03/2018

Gate at bottom of pub that leads along track and up. Felt like I shouldn't have been thereThe-Z-Man02/06/2017
As per ngthackMark Sims10/05/2017
From layby, along FP over footbridge and stile. Up path into woods. Went to first hillock, but second one was higher on north side of fence. 6th county top of the day, before long drive home.PeterD09/04/2017
With Eire, Evan, Sail, Coel & Alfie. The highest point seems to be on the north side of the fence!Dangerous Dave22/01/2017
As ngthack - thanks :)the_adam10/12/2016

We gave the smart wedding guests something to look at as we trooped through the posh grounds of the hotel (on the row) then up fields and step over fence.Chris Pearson27/07/2016

From Se, signed footpath starts 15m from layby. Once across FB, path up thru copse leads to East summit which felt higher to me. 1:10k mapping has a third spot ht, on fence line due n. Hedge bank here and at west summit confuses the issue a little.RHW02/04/2016
From camper van in loop of old B road, where I had spent a very cold night after a Redcar & Cleveland completion the day before. Go in main entrance of Whinstone View & just inside there is a gate on the left. Through this & along track past wattle fence & chalets to find the well hidden footbridge on the left. Turn right alongside stream for 50 m., then along field edge to the two hillocks.ngthack25/02/2016
last one of the day, parked in the events centre and walked through to the start of the foot path. Reached the top just before the sun went down.mcallmar28/09/2015
Parked easily to SE. Finally found the footpath. Its signed just inside the entrance to the Events Centre on the gate.destaylor14/08/2015
As for Dugswell2arranc26/06/2015
Small pull in off the main road to the east at the start of the footpath to the north. Easy, hidden path from this to the summit.moorsman03/04/2015
From lay-by along footpath through Whinestone View.Newton Maximus02/01/2015
Accessed using footpath through the grounds of Whinstone View from the lay-bye on the B1292.Dugswell231/08/2014
Parked in Langbaurgh Spa Centre, wandered about for a while and eventually found the footbridge. Short walk from there. Highest point next to fence.Aye Jimmy10/03/2013
Walked up onto ridge line above the leisure complex till realised where the county boundary was! Found bridge and visited east and west hillocks. The GR on RHB site is for west hillock, not east. Still both seems same height at @100m.nordicstar11/12/2012
As part of a walk from Roseberry Topping to Eston Nab. Possibly the most uninspiring county top of them all, and I have done Hale.DanHolme31/08/2012
Circular walk from South of Nunthorpe. Quarry Hill, Eastfield Farm, Nunthorpe and back to car.PaulH29/02/2012
Parked at the layby on the B1292 and walked through the Whinstone View Luxury Lodges & Spa site to gain access to the ridge beyond. Once I'd found the footbridge there was no problem. yorkie27/02/2012
Same path up as those below. Just managed to get out of the caravan park before a huge wedding party arrived.The Team08/10/2011
Felt like a real trespasser going through the Whinstone beauty and leasure complex but then spotted footbridge. Just required a slight diversion from the path to get to top where they is a good view of Roseberry Topping.signyred25/08/2011
made a small circular walk from nunthorpe hall.johnfwoolley17/11/2010
couldn't get to the east hillock as the farmers were catching rabbits with ferrets.DARRENG18/09/2010
Through the caravan park and over the footbridge as those below. good views.asbown14/03/2009
Access paths a little overgrown, but worth the effort - top at indeterminate point in lovely meadow on hilltop, tons of wild flowers and stunning burnet moths. Great views of Roseberry Topping.wheresthepath08/07/2006
Parked in the layby on the road to the south and walked up through the caravan park. The western hillock looks the bigger to me but the easterly one read 1 m higher at 102m.Father Ted22/02/2006
Whinstone View Bistro (good food reports) and Caravan Park is signed off the B1292. Follow track around edge of park and cross the footbridge. Then head uphill and admire the views of Roseberry Topping, Captain Cooks Monument and Urra Moor all towering abNick17/01/2006
