Bagged, up and down from the Clash side (W)- rough track by forest edge meant an easy ascent. Off our Muir of Persie- Long Goat- Cat Law (qv log for more detail)- The Crandard- Muir of Persie walk.pwheeler17/06/2024

Parked in large lay-by to the east. Along old track then turned left up the slope for the summit. Returned along an old track along the ridge then dropped down through heather back to the start.Adrian22/06/2022

After Long Goat, followed tracks to summit ridge.Lindsay M14/03/2018
Tried the track from the east round the north of the hill. Open gate into trees fine but had to climb over the second fence. Still plenty of lying snow.alda17/02/2018
On the way down from Cat Law, no need to climb fences. Just stick to the fence round the north edge of both the woods. I think that Colin's fence is in fact a very dodgy gate- we just managed to open it.Pete R10/02/2018
Parked near Bykenhillock then track through woods - lots of pheasants and feeders. A fence blocks the track but is easily crossed. I left at a fence to ascend directly to the ridge then along a clear sheep track which goes most of the way to the top. Lovely little hillColin Crawford04/11/2017
