Found a wee parking spot by some rocks just NNW of the B953/Collace Rd junction. Crossed the B953 to a field gate then SSE direction over a field and two more gates onto the heathery dome of Hill of Franklyden. Headed NE from summit down to another gate and across a field and further gate just before Hoole Hill SW Top. NE once again, and over a deer fence to the forestry track in Pitmiddle Wood. Followed track until ENE of summit, where a fire break gives access to the top - just a few fallen trees to clamber over/skirt around. Once back on track headed to the B953 and along road to waiting car.summitter19/12/2023
Parked on verge near end of track to Hoole Farm. Very straighforward walk. Snow threatening.Crumblie229/11/2023
From the parking spot opposite The Little House, up track towards Woodwell. Gate on R to Craighead. Diagonally across fields & onto track N of Woodwell. Through sparse gorse to Kinnaird Hill. Track to N & across to Pitmiddle Wood track at 227304. Hoole Hill climbed easily from E & down to N. Loads of breaks in mature forest. Hoole Hill SW top by crossing board walk N end of Loch. Tracks, field crossing & short climb to Hill of Franklyden. South to pick up track near non existent reservoir & back via Woodwell. Grand morning out.Lynnebe01/05/2023

3 tump round hill of franklyden, hoole hill SW top, hoole hill, parked approx 200m east of t junction on grass verge next to a gate.robertphillips02/02/2019
Parking very awkward as almost every possibility has no parking signs or blocking boulders. I squeezed in next to a field gateway west of Tullach Ard. Then a similar route to others. The summit tracks are very rough indeed but the trees are open. Lacking a compass, I reached open ground to the south west with a mix of dead reconing and luck. The west top was a stroll then I descended past HooleColin Crawford26/10/2017
