Short Summary created by csd, wicklore  17 Jul 2011
The accepted local route up Bruse Hill is from the graveyard on the north side of the hill. There does not appear to be another public route up. Park in the car park next to the school at N31338 98810 A. For the sake of clarity go through the graveyard and exit from the gate at the back-right to get out into the quarry area. Don't climb over the official quarry gates. Follow a track to the left which leads up behind the quarry. Be very careful near the edge of the quarry as there are unguarded drops of more than 40 feet. There is what could be called a faint sheep track (if there were any sheep!) that you can just about follow when the larger track peters out, which will ease the trip up to the summit. There are extensive views to the rolling countryside in all directions. The Neolithic stone cairns along the summit are hidden under deep heather.
