From Craigend in more or less a straight line to the top.sclater22/01/2024
On a walk out of Stirling to bag hills before the rain came in. Had to navigate an obstacle course on the way downPhilipChaston29/03/2023
Along the Scout camp entrance road then along a series of gravel and grass paths to the summit. The visit reminded me that it was the Scouts that got me into this hill bagging malarkey in the first place.summitter07/04/2022
On first attempt had to turn back as although winter it was a Sunday and young Scouts there for an outing. No problem today as a Friday.Crumblie204/03/2022
With Bob from the south on good paths. There's even a notice board to help hapless TUMPers.Play2End11/02/2022
From Skea Craig to Meikle Canglour Rd,on towards Lower Canglour,over fields and through woods to top. Easiest access is by erratic stone to Scout camp complex. Returned to car by track to north of Coulter Reservoirlordtonult04/02/2022
A straightforward walk along the access track, turning left along the new road through the gate before the car park, past the wooden shelter with a map board and the rather impressive turf-roofed shelter in the woodland beyond to the summit knoll.Nick Down127/03/2021

Walked through a deserted scout camp. Visited a couple of possible high points. A pleasant stroll.hillsman19/03/2020
As fasgadh (thanks) Note that the trees round summit continue to be thinned. Easiest way is to get to the wooden shelter at the road end, follow the gravel path thro gate to loos, and back through a gate there. Straight ahead to biouvac, summit on ridge behind to right. The boulder beyond the loos is an interesting feature, even if nowhere near summit! Is the highest point nearer NS 78982 86823? Complicated by the tree roots and trunks. Nicer at that side anyway, there's a view!Belfarm 17/03/2020
I remember the place being pretty rough from orienteering events, but things have changed recently. Went up from the south, along the Scouts access road (good hill for Winter they are not around). There is a new road, westward from the car park which goes almost to the summit. From the road end and shelter there is a path, past a turf roofed shelter, to the summit. The top is no longer in fight, as shown on the last orienteering map and is easy to find and access. A good wee hill and easy now.fasgadh06/02/2020
Parked layby near Lower Craigour and across fields. As others actual highpoint is in the horrible jumble of trees which I blundered around in inside the poorly fenced off wood just above the scout encampment.Thearlaichdubh30/12/2019
Fence repair work going on south of Craigend, P eventually just N of Lower Canglour, easy across fields and up through bracken.agentmancuso22/02/2019
Larbert-Denny-Myot Hill-Skea Craig-Barr Wood Hill-Tappoch-Larbert. A woman good naturedly warned me that it was out of bounds when scouts are in the area as I was leaving the scout campground at the main entrance (having entered by a more idiosyncratic route). Was worried when I reached the road proper and found her in conversation with a policeman. He showed no interest in me though.campagvelocet02/01/2019
parked at gate on bend on road south of craigend, went up through woods to the top, retuned via fields to the west which was better.robertphillips07/01/2018
Summit area is a jumble of fallen trees, near broken down deer fence and hobbit-like hut. [Scouts use wood for camps. Came across sign saying that unauthorised visitors would be challenged if Scouts were in area.] Impossible to decide on exact high point. I made it around 790868 [as opposed to estimate of 789868.] Started from NW just past turn-off for Craigend. On way down found 4-wheel drive track which comes out at gate across from entrance to Craigend House. A lot of effort for such a low hill.russell6106/01/2016
Actual high point not obvious - several contenders in fenced off area of woodland. I spent 15 minutes scrambling over fallen trees, only to conclude that my initial candidate was probably the summit.Colin Crawford04/05/2015
P at Bend of road to Tarmac. Track and path then into fenced off woodland which is being felled.chrisbien26/12/2013
