Followed footpath up to Low Scarside and on through gate to the summit. Some care is needed with the path on ascent as it is not well marked and the crossing points of the walls, which need to be crossed, is not always obvious.JohnW24/11/2019
In Scar, Knipescar Common, Heughscar Hillkeithouk13/10/2019
The gate to the SE gives access to the pasture E of the plantation. A marauding pack of bullocks guarded the top field but fortunately my wife was able to distract them (from the safety of the other side of the fence) long enough for a quick bag. Not nice.milimana04/10/2019
From A6 via bridleway round much expanded quarry.Waymarks similar to bridleway signs on gate near summit at about 536 191PeteN01/10/2019
Was going to park at Scarside Farm but the owner was driving down and asked me to park on the road which I did. An easy 1.75 mile round trip from there.Jim.Fothergill27/02/2019
Solo. It's a lot easier than it looks on the map. There's a gap in the plantation. Nip over the wall here from Knipescar Common. Over the fence by a wooden section in the corner then across field to high point.Dangerous Dave27/05/2018
From the west parking at cattle grid and via Knipe Scar. No longer a gap between the plantations or in wall so went to the south east end of Inscar plantation, and followed a rerouted bridleway (different to that shown on current OS map) through two gates almost to In Scar summitFisky Boy19/05/2018

If heading here after Knipescar, bear in mind that the clearing between the two sections of trees has now been planted and the wall is unclimbable. However, at the moment (November 17) there is a collapsed section 100m further along from the start of the second plantation. This gives easy access into the wood and subsequently the summit. Glad I went before the Lowrher Estate discovered this as it will almost certainly be rebuilt.moorsman28/10/2017
From start of RoW (NY 5299 1828), just room for a car. Went round E end of Inscar Plantation. On to Knipescar Common. Ground 160m N at NY 53578 19234 seemed as high, if not higher.jonglew26/09/2017
Through the gate from the WObardolph25/07/2017
Parked down at A6 again, and w Bryher and Jenx went up track, around edge of mature rape and then BW past old limekiln. These fields overgrown and thistly, possible signs of quarry expansion. After In Scar went through woods and gap in wall to Wainwright top. Jen down to Bampton w dog while I returned to car and round to collect them from river bridge.nordicstar13/07/2017

In Scar from NY 53520 18091ronaldo33308/10/2016
From Knipe Scar. Looked up the summit photo on this site and located the boulder in near darkness without too much trouble. Headed back NW, between the copses and strode across the grassland, followed the strip plantations north then west to the bridleway and back to the car at 10pm. Good end to a good day.Wycombe Wanderer24/08/2016
From Knipe Scar SE there is a break in the wall which gives access into the plantation. The north edge of the wood is skirted before a walk through the fields to the top. With GB.bolton21/07/2016
Parked by cattle grid at 522187 - Track & then obvious path through bracken to Knipescar Common - ESE to the section of wall that has collapsed at 533189 - Crossed wall, through gate & across to summit. (PM)gerrybowes21/07/2016

Popped over wall to visit on way back from top of Knipe Scar.citygent15/04/2014
On way to Knipescar Common. Obvious boulder in open grassy area is the OS point, but 150m or so away is a copse with stile, which looks higher.Aye Jimmy29/01/2014

With Jo, circular walk Bampton Grange: road to Scarside, In Scar (using signed path), returning to gate, Knipe Scar, descending to road for return. Weather; sunny, mild, very good visibility.amblerbob09/01/2013
Verge of road beside Scar Side Farm at NY 53705 18287. Follow bridleway and although not shown on the map there is an inviting, way-pointed, wide grassy track that leads round the corner of the plantation where it then turns sharp left to run parallel with the trees. The track runs about 80 metres north of the plantation wall to another gate from where it is just a short distance to the summit of In Scar.David Gradwell11/11/2007
