A fairly straightforward route most of the way, involving a direct walk of almost 3km along a forest track before a 200m trudge up a sort-of trail that is muddy and littered with detritus from nearby clear fell. Parking for 2/3 cars at a forest entrance to the north.
Forest entrance.
The forest track is pretty straight in a SSE direction for about 2.5km then curves sharply back to NE for about 100m. At this point watch for a narrow trail up over a bank on the left – a bit of a scramble – which will take you on to a rough area of long grass, muddy patches, heather and sedge grass, all of it littered with bits of felled trees.
Clear fell on slopes, with Knockfune & Keeper beyond.
There is a faint track to be found through this in a NE direction for about 200m to the high point, which is unmarked except for a small sawn off stump.
The unlovely highpoint - marked by a small stump.
Good views across valley of the adjacent Knockfune with Keeper Hill directly behind it. Allow about 1 hour 15 minutes return trip.
This chap was grazing peacefully by a stream near the start point.

Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 1h 36m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
