Parked outside the Auldgirth Inn (where people were sitting outside drinking beer). Walked up the road half way towards High Auldgirth, then used forestry tracks to approach summit. Crossed a high wall via a style at 92197 86850, to gain access to top. Great views towards Criffel, Solway Firth and Skiddaw beyond. Descended the back of the hill, looping around through Wild Cat Glen - beautiful route down.Toby-and-Dion02/05/2021
Parked at side of a green lane near High Auldgirth (NX 9232 8743). Took a near enough direct line to summit over some wet ground - cattle pastures, but no cattle seen. On to Blackcraig Hill after returning most of the way to the car then picking up a farm track at NX 9257 8775.jonglew16/11/2020
