Parked at Wellbank track end. Old map tracks require updating. New track goes round to loch. North side of hill steep but open woodland.bertbarnett12321/09/2021
Parked opposite entrance to parkside, along track to broomfauld, vague rough track through the gorse to the upper unmapped track,up along edge of the woodland to the top 50m inside the trees.robertphillips26/02/2020
I walked along the track from the south, which is not really driveable, but it should be possible to drive from the east to NO 40972 60545 where there is plenty of parking and a track to a dump. Easy grass slopes up from there past the ruin. Rough track goes into the trees, which are no problem. Small cairn at the top.alda17/02/2018
Easy access from unmapped track on west side of hill. Pleasant walkable wood on top.Lindsay M14/01/2018
