On the return, crossed Ballgan Burn above the waterfalls to meet the farm track taken on the outward route. A pleasant 15k round.jonglew29/08/2023

Path up to summit through crags from 552804 is easy to follow on ascent but probably trickier to find on the way down (though I didn't descend that way)49pp22/03/2021

Parked lay by near Ballagan farm, round of Dumbreck, Oswen and Slackdhu. Hot and sunny. Bit of moor crossing between first two and Slackdhu, but dry and not too tussocky.iangalbraith18/06/2020

First went up in 2007 and then many times since then, particularly in the period through to 2011. Spent many evenings alone scrambling up the front, in the worst of winter, all through summer, did some first recorded ascents beside Jenny's Lum (E3 5b!), and generally came here for a bit of peace. Don't go so much now, but I grew up 10 mins away so it's very much the 'home hill' of my late teenage years.Kevin2903523/09/2007
From Blanefield via Cantywherry, on to Dumbreck. With Fiona, Chalmers No.6.agentmancuso25/02/1995
