From a small parking area at Birset Plantation near a mast. Headed along the road NW to where a track goes off L following a long plantation. Through a gate then left following the wall then N into the woods for a short while following an overgrown track to another gate. Summit is just a short distance with nothing but tufty grass as a summit. Headed due N to Hounds Hill on Holmains Moor. Planned on returning through the forest on a different track but that was totally overgrown so retraced steps back to the startWayne Mac22/04/2024

2nd hill of 4 today, after Ronald's hill i dtopped down to the road and followed it to a stile for Kirkton chapel, following the edge of a fence then a plank to cross a stream, straight across pasture to rougher terrain and bypassing plantation to reach top just outside plantngs. Also visited high point just inside fence at edge of spruce plantation. Onwards to Hazelbrow via cairn on Hound hill...Dazingdale02/09/2021

Reasonably problem free link from Moss Castle. Difficult to say whether the top is in the field or just within the young treesColin Crawford09/10/2019
