Off the R333 there is parking at Castlehackett at M35604 49423 C. This is a simple trail loop around the the hill. Near the summit, branch off the trail at M36048 48461 D at a wall along the ridge line to the ruins of an old castle, a stone cross and the trig point which sit on top of a large cairn before rejoining the trail and continuing the loop.
