Dumglow, Cleish Hills - Walkhighlands routehummusg01/08/2023
Usual wayVerySlowPlodder14/06/2023
Warm, breezy, with intervals of sun. Left from car park just off Cleish road (FC signpost “Loch Glow”). Down and around E side of loch to climb grassy rake between forest and deer fence. This could be boggy so bypass through deer gate fence passed earlier and rejoin path at a point west of the first craggy wee “Innean” (hill). Ascend by felled and live plantation to nice path on open moor to summit. Potentially great views (was hazy today). Returned by Black Loch (descend steeply west at first) and S shore of L Glow.niallp19/05/2023

WalkHighlands route from 217m point on the road, via Dummiefarline. Fallen trees barred the route going through forestry, but it's easy enough to get around.the pigguy 02/10/2022
From E. Parked on edge of 'Passing Place', 50m SW of start of track -As others, W. & then S. to fingerpost at NT 08294 96319 - Up path to top of forest, bypassing a few windblown, & then good path to summit. Felling over recent years has opened up the area making it a lot lighter with much better views. This season's felling now underway.gerrybowes22/09/2022
Came here after Bishops Hill and lunch at a nearby farm shop. From parking at gate near spot height 163 NT 069975.G4OBK (Phil)22/03/2022
From poor parking at NT093971, circuit of Georgeton Hills, Park Hill, Dumglow, The Inneans and Dummiefarline. 8.65km, 395m ascent.TRG31827/01/2022

By track and path (marked) from minor road on east side, all the way to top.willyross25/10/2021
Parked in one of the laybys near NO185026 (marked as a walk on the Explorer map). Followed sign posted forestry track towards Dumglow. Turned south at T-junction at NT081969, this is sign posted but the sign is obscured by a new pine tree when coming from the east. At NT083963 followed the forest ride towards the open hill (this is also sign posted). Once in open, followed path up to summit. Style at around NT078963 became covered in flying ants in between me ascending and descending from the summit so crossing it on the way down involved getting covered in ants...Danmawr22/08/2021
Cross country from the main road to the west. Some difficult ground to get through, but the views are well worth it once you eventually reach the summit.Alex C02/08/2021
Jog up from the road to the E.amswanston16/05/2021
Post-work bag from N. Took the dodgy N face up - not helped by wearing wellies and carrying a flask! Lovely little evening hill.iangpark11/05/2021
Mountain biking route via Loch Glow was very muddy and trackless for the most part. Found a fire break on the return trip that made for fast progress back to a path and then back into the bog for a return trip to loch Glowkathyh15/11/2020
From Kirkhill Common. Forest car park area closed off with metal barrier, but large verge layby opposite.vuirich17/01/2020
From east up marked track/path - rifle shooting going on but they advised me I was OK on the route taken. On way to Raith Rovers game!SS04/01/2020
Nigel Morter's route in ascent, on arriving back at the track took continuation firebreak (now cleared on its north side) east to do The Inneans, good alternative route back to the car.Dave McG21/12/2019
Via forest tracks to E. Sunset – beautiful light on top, light breeze. Still in trees. Strange man at foot of hill. (Dogging?) Rounsfell25/10/2019
From road to the east via forest tracks.Winterfloodian29/08/2019
Followed N.Morters route. A lot of felling has taken place which means good views, particularly of Loch Levan can be had on the ascent.garyhoney12/08/2019
After the Inneans. ascended from Inneans eastward then circled round on path in coll leading down to edge of forest and what is now a large felled area. followed th edge of the felled area to an open area with a sign post then followed tis track up through trees, out onto open moorland then summit. Very hot with many flies in wooded area. Great views from summit. On to Georgeton Hills.Jubilado30/07/2019
From NT 093971, limited parking in long passing place. W then S along forest roads to signpost at NT 083963, then NW up omitted planting row in trees(thank you original foresters) and onto open grassy fell to top.Isbjorn21/03/2019
A sign posted route through the forest from the road to the NE. Reached the top as the first snows of winter floated down.summitter27/10/2018

As bolton, signpost mentioned is at NT 08294 96319. Then back via The Inneans, which is good value.Pete R02/06/2018
With U3A Adventure Walking Group from Blairadam Forest car park via Nivingston Crags and Dummiefarline and back along N of Black Loch and Loch Glow. Faultless cold sunny day though slightly hazy.dbb17/01/2018
A Boxing Day circuit of the Cleish Hills from Outh Bridge in snow and sunshine. Even so, I plunged through the snow into the marshy depths by the forestry often enough to demonstrate that Scaur Hill and Wether Hill are really better kept for a separate short walk. Outh Hill (having walked North up the A823 and crossed the fence where wire gives way to planks by a stream) - Park Hill - Georgeton Hills - a hugely enjoyable ascent and descent of Dumglow by its snowy prow - the Slough of Des[pond to Scaur Hill - forest tracks and a clever path through the trees to the tussocky summit of Wether Hill - back by the forest track and A823.Nick Down126/12/2017
Followed N.Morters route, all nicely waymarked, and a decent path up the final firebreak, if a little dark and gloomy on the last section. Nice summit with good views, but not a 5* route overall, because it's mainly in rather ugly forestry.Gill09/11/2017
From the E via forestry tracks.Chris Peart26/10/2017
As bolton, signpost mentioned is at NT 68294 96319.Lionel Bidwell06/10/2017
From end of track to E (12:15) followed it and southern branch then signed path through woods to open country and top. Sunny, good views. Back same route; finish 13:35dbb03/08/2017
Parked at 093971 in the track entrance. A good route west then south where at the end of the forest road a signpost directs you through the ride to a distinct path to the summit. 65 minutes return in glorious weather. Solo.bolton04/06/2017
Weather fair.MountainMac22/04/2017
Parked at the end of the track to Loch Glow fisheries, could have parked in the car park but decided to walk. Took the muddy South path round the loch, then up towards Black Loch and then up a very steep track (following a fence line) up to the ridge line near the fort and then over to the trigpoint. Fantastic views in all directions. Took a track back towards the Loch to a new looking style and then down a path towards the trees which just stopped dead and then had to head back to the fenceline we came up. Nae easier on the way down! Took North track back around loch much less muddy.thejackrustles02/04/2017
From Nivingston Common, like most (e.g. N.Morters), starting near 226 m and using forest tracks and firebreak. Nice open top, traces of fort, and surprisingly good views- snow plastered Ochils were especially impressive. Rather churned up tracks in places, but passable.pwheeler23/03/2017
From forest tracks to the east. Parked at the forest walk mark on OS map before sharp bend. Follow track west, take the left turn track to its end. Signpost up the path along the firebreak out and onto the open hill close to summit. SnowN.Morters11/02/2017
Along tracks starting at road at NT093971, then followed fence line through wood from ca NT081968 to wood edge, then up steep slope to summit.kdbennett14/01/2017
Solo. Used track from the north along edge of field and then up through forest. Followed track as shown on OS 1:25,000 map, which branches off main track shortly before turning circle of main track. Not much evidence of a track on the ground. Went up Georgeton Hills first and then Dumglow. Beautiful day after the storms.pwbellarby27/12/2016
From minor road nt 093 972 with mora. Foerestry work - sone tracks impassable.BLACKHILL21/10/2016
Dumglow plus The Inneans (TUMP ) with Rik (Bailey). Path along loch was very wet, passed many quiet fishermen. Race meeting at Knockhill was evident.captainslow09/04/2016

Solo, part of circuit round Loch Glow. Dull but dry. Approached through the forest from the Inneans, after a bit of hunting for a way through.Glengavel19/09/2015
