Good parking for a car due S in wide field entrance (NT 7966 2551). Steep pull up across sheep pasture to corner of plantation and briefly through to avoid stone wall and gorse. Nice hill, maybe best of the 10 done today.jonglew22/01/2023
Steep pull up from the south rewarded with nice craggy top with good views.Adrian22/01/2023
From minor road to the E. Lovely frosty day and glorious sunshinecolazione02/01/2023
From the south east off the B6253. Up along strip of trees. I think the cairn is the highest spot.Andrew Simmons04/01/2021
Bike from The Kip. Parked in the strip wood to the south east. Used wood at first to avoid bull, then cut across to bracken covered open hillside. The shoot across the glen added to the atmosphere of mild menace. The views from the charming summit ridge dispelled the said feeling of menace. This is a fine wee hill. Down the same way and on to Bowmont Forest. My money is on the north topfasgadh21/10/2019
Gate and parking at NT 7966.2550. Track W for short way then up side of wood. Summit knoll with cairn and small quarry to W. Summit 125m to N similar height.Aye Jimmy21/08/2018
Very steep grassy ascent from south, strangely satisfying. The cairned summit has it, I suspectColin Crawford21/08/2017
