As others from the cottages.Andrew Simmons23/01/2023
After sleeping under its west flank, I drove a further mile to walk up its gentle grassy slopes from the SW. With an unusual view up to the NE of Burswark Hill as a simple dome when from SE & NW it looks like a long flat topped ridge.vegibagger03/12/2021
parked near three well brae cottage 2 fields and 1 gate gets you to the top.robertphillips25/04/2021
Parked at Three-well-brae cotts. Ground to N badly waterlogged; on advice of one of the very helpful residents, hopped the field bdy ~100m S cutting up to a fence junc (NY 1510 7526); followed fenceline NE to a gate just before woodland then directly to hill top across a cattle pasture that came complete with cattle... feisty lot of steers that had to be watched closely!jonglew10/10/2020
Good parking by driveway to Whitehill but I had to walk quite a way SE on the road in order to avoid a long ribbon of crop field which blocks a direct ascent. Easy pasture thereafter.Colin Crawford09/10/2019
