Parked off the main A710 road by following the small gravel road up to 8426-5676, room for two or three cars max. Follow the gravel forestry road to 8470-5732, two bike tracks go off in to the forest take the second one. Follow it up and along the hill going from one side of the wall to the other side and back in to the forest. Follow a path of sorts, through and up and around to the top coming out to the two Trig points.smocks and denims07/06/2024
Moyle. Free parking for two 200 metres up the unsurfaced track just before the NAV sign NX842566. Hill has been taken over by MTB-ers. 50K map not much use. FaLS road to NX846576 where it begins to descend. Passed no FPs, no firebreaks, no rides, so went up a kamikaze MTB route which delivered me within 20 metres of the trigIsbjorn22/04/2024

P Craigieknowes GC, forestry track past Barnbarroch till near the top then entertaining anti-clockwise circuit on mountain bike trails.agentmancuso18/05/2023
Car park at Richard Plantation to the NW. Paid for 2 hours, but could be done in one hour if you are quick! Forest tracks then signposted path to summit. With Jill.Dangerous Dave13/07/2022
Eventually found path after thrashing through dead Bracken! Open summit has trig and bench dispersed native woodland, Bracken and bilberry.Denise 16/04/2022
Parked at Craigieknowes GC CP and walked up the forest road, then an mtb track and then a short steep path to the trig.NormanW07/04/2022
From Kippford, limited places to park so used the golf course. Up the obvious track then mountain bike trails to fort and trig.N.Morters20/11/2021
From Barnbarroch up the track to right turning. Followed this track to signpost. Followed this track but at a bend the track goes away from the main track and is not signposted. Followed this for a couple of hundred yards to a small post with Moyle Hill waymarker on it. Path then short but very steep comes out of the trees along the ridge through long grass and bracken to pillar. Headed off past the pillar to a fork which we took the left one. Then minor tracks back to main track to BarnbarrochWayne Mac29/09/2021
Visited the trig/summit on an enjoyable afternoon walk on a sunny day. Solo.meltdiceburg25/08/2021
Parked at Dalbeattie Town Wood carpark, followed dog on our usual dogwalk to forest road crossroads at NX846587 then turned south towards Colvend (signposted). Interesting tracks through Woodhouse ruins, then back onto the more easterly forest road S to NX847580 where Moyle Hill is signposted. Summit plateau is overgrown but with native woodland, lovely autumn colours. Followed good MTB trail S to end of plateau then dropped off v steeply SW to rejoin forest road & let the dog find the route home.catlovesmaps11/08/2021
It's Moyles away from anywhere. Approached from Colvend picking up a geocache or two on the way on a very hot day with the dog. Cooled down at the Clonyard afterwards.jigglybones15/08/2020
Golf course CP. used forest tracks and bike trails. No problem getting to top. Path crosses by Trig. With B and R.jenx15/07/2020
Parked at the golf course car park at NX8424 5617 (has a little tea shop). Followed forest track, then MBT towards the summit. Cut off the track to go up when the summit was above us, but could probably have continued round on the track. Pleasant walk, good views.LizH07/02/2020
From Town wood car park out and back on different routesSS18/08/2019
From 842565 there is a parking space for 2 cars up the lane. A pleasant walk to this summit on a rainy afternoon. Both dogs with myself.bolton08/05/2019

A lot going on at this summit. Very enjoyable walk anyhow.Alex C22/03/2018
from barnbarroch track then path to near top.robertphillips10/12/2017
Parked at 9 hole golf course and followed path towards Dalbeattie, missing the MTB track S of summit so had to thrash through awful vegetation to get to ridge. Descent much easier on the path I might have found.Thearlaichdubh18/07/2017
Anti clockwise circuit from Barnbarroch. Summit path signed if you do it this way roundjimbloomer06/02/2017
Parked at Barnbarroch (free).mae27/10/2015
Pay and display CP at NX83611 59096. I followed the blue trail for the ascent. First sign for the summit at NX84704 58075. Carried on over the ridge and then used alternative cycle tracks for the return - might not be a good idea if the riders are out and about. Got very wet.Martin R12/12/2013
As Chris B again to find very white trig at top.Dugswell220/10/2012
Started 7 Stanes CP. Followed track to 84692 58074 where the path to top starts.chrisbien31/07/2010
Earthworks of an old hill fort in a forest. Top is fairly inpenetrable but I seemed to find the highest point by chance.clivevilla13/07/2008
