From W, Craigton entrance. After Benscravie. HP in dense spruce just N forest road which makes for easy access. Delighted (?!) to find small old cairn, with HP there or within a few metres, level summit area. Then south for some Fife tops and home.RHW26/12/2018
JohnW's description leads to the hill's E top. Unfortunately the 329m spot height is on the higher W one and reaching it entails some unavoidable pushing, ducking and crawling through dense prickly trees.Lindsay M14/01/2018
The summit is covered with a thick new plantation. On the advice of the owner I went through a small gate just past an old quarry/dump on the track. I then followed a narrow ride to a fence and then turned right for highest point. It is possible that the highest point is just off the track and outside the plantation. All will be revealed when the forest matures.JohnW03/08/2017
