Verge parking to S. Over fallen fence and straight up. Onwards to Finavon E Top.PGCE28/02/2024
Short and steep ascent from road pass after crossing a collapsed section of a high deer fence.Topographer5718/02/2024
Through the drop down half gate and then a very faint path through the bracken. Very clear outline of the fort to be seen. Recommend going in winter due to bracken and long grass.Crumblie226/08/2023
Through the fence. There is a path, but just passable with the bracken being so high and thick. Fab view north.Play2End24/08/2023
Parked at bend in the road east of hill. Through hatch in the deer fence and used various tracks to the top. 5 minutes.Jossker22/01/2022
Through a convenient fence flap to the SW besides the minor road. Once through the lower slope bracken its a pleasant walk around the walls of a summit fort.summitter02/01/2022

A quick bag from parking at the gate.robertphillips19/07/2020
Thanks lady and gents for improving the access route through the bracken. An enormous help. Fine evening views. Section 26 re-completedColin Crawford19/07/2020
Exactly as Minto.chrisbien06/07/2020
Parked in the layby / passing place next to the cat flap in the fence. Signs of a path steeply up through the bracken, tall and wet, then long grass equally wet, to the summit earthworks. Pouring rain so didn't hang around, but equally soaked from the vegetation. On the way down, tried to improve the path, presumably made by J, L & R a weekly earlier.Minto05/07/2020
