Parked at Finzean sawmill, although could have parked at start of Peter Hill track, short way over bridge. Visited Peter Hill first, then continued to Baudnacauner. Returned via track W of Garrol Burn, which becomes indistinct below 500m.PGCE26/02/2024

Followed land-rover track from Burnfoot to top of Cock Hill (no cairn). From there headed east across the soul destroying peat haggs to top of Baudnacauner (no cairn). Headed north west from there to pick up land-rover track back to Burnfoot. 7 mile round. Easy going apart from dull trudge between both tops.Jossker02/04/2022
From the old Sawmill. Good parking there. Path up Peter Hill then onward to Baudnacauner. Descended to marked track nr Glasspits Burn. This was overgrown but passable. Down to attractive woodland then path along river back to start. With B and R.jenx18/08/2020
2nd visit. 5hr outing with L and the dogs. Sunny and breezy. Over Peter Hill first as previously then onwards easily(past the octagonal shooting lodge) on tracks and paths which fizzle out before heathery summit.Numerous peat groughs await on the journey to Cock Hill. Great sweeping views of empty hills.Chris Pearson19/07/2020
2/2 from Peter Hill, after the track finished at small, well built, colourful lodge - started heading up what looked like a track but quickly became waterlogged, in and out of peat hags, dodging deep bog, knee deep heather with the occasional easy going, not enjoyable and not much of note from the summit, had the same fun descending to overgrown track to NE before reaching forest and easy walk alongside the Feugh back to the sawmill.PDuncan8223/01/2020
With L After Peter Hill - icy tracks and bog then snowy heather on last bit - then sideways snow storm hit us on the featureless summit. Rough snowy heather descent to track and down to Burnfoot. I almost trod on a camouflaged white mountain hare L told me from behind as it shot out from under my feet - I still never saw it. 3 mile quiet road walk (no cars passed us) back down beautiful Water of Feugh to the sawmill -last mile at a jog as icy rain began to fall.Chris Pearson09/11/2019

Some snow icy track Nice & easy walk to the summit trig with Dianne Scorgie & Linda Lawson. White Hares, Grouse & 1 deer Lots of up & downs across the summit plateau through the peat haggs. Investigated what at first we thought was a Tipi but it was a fantastic round wooden hut with tipt style roof hut for Beaters & the guns to have a hill side lunch NO567 881LizzieG26/11/2017

A long west to east round from Birse castle via all Graham tops from Gannoch to Peter Hill plus Baudnacauner. Quite a lost of track so speedy going. teeming with mountain hares which looked very conspicuous in the absence of snow.dickscroop19/02/2017

this is one of my very first hills perhaps my second after Mither Tap of Benachie. No accurate date logged at the time and the log in my little teenage log book from the 60's calls it Glaspits as that's what it was called in the One Inch map. Circa 61-63vegibagger01/07/1963
