Third visit, linking Hill of Adenaich to Bruntshields,the two Tumps the main agenda for todayColin Crawford15/07/2024
2/3. Revisit. From Cormuir, NO 3051 6669, H5, G, H5. Mapped and unmapped tracks most of the way.RHW07/06/2024
From Glen Prosen side. Tricky parking. Suggested parking in SMC Donald and Graham guide 100m past bridge no good. Got parked up by bench at big White House up the Wester Lednathie road just past Bog. Easy angled track up Glen Uig then up to ridge at col following track past grouse butts. Descended along ridge to Finlet but there is little to recommend here, would rather have gone back the same way as ascent. The ascent as described would be fun on a mountain bike. Looks like it would also be possible approaching the col from the west.PeteF24/05/2024
From verge parking SE of track leaving Glen Prosen road at 332659. This is by turns earthy, grassy and gravelly, rising pleasantly almost to the summit of the Hill of Adenaich (Hill of Adenoids?). The remainder of the way to Corwharn is across heather and peat hags, with some help from vague ATV tracks following the fence. The shepherd's cairn isn't quite on the summit of Corwharn.Nick Down110/05/2024
From Creigh Hill. Descended to Glen Quharity, then along the glen track. Then up the Broom Shank track. Nearly trod on a very groggy adder.Owen B20/04/2024
Car park by Backwater reservoir at NO 257615, N up road, over stream, across field to edge of (cleared) forest then over Milldewan, Cairn Corse to summit, following new fence to begin with (and new wood if sign is correct!). ATV track most of way. Pushed along by Storm Kathleen.MichaelF06/04/2024
Circular walk on tracks and ridges from Cormuir.Winterfloodian02/09/2023
From large parking spot near bridge at NO 29380 67905 walked down the road to Cormuir. Then up track to Hill of Ardenaich. Intermittent track/path across to Corwharn. Debate about which tussock was the actual summit. Heather and bits of path down north west shoulder to track. Then took in Hill of Strone before descending directly down rough hillside (there is a path but some members of our group decided to forsake it for the steep rough heather) back to cars.Fife Walking23/07/2023
Descended Tarapetmile by the fence then followed track up to Cairn Corse (581m). Followed fence to Corwharn. Down to Easter Lednathie via Hill of Adenaich & Finlet. Solo.Dangerous Dave07/07/2023
Circuit of Corwharn and nearby tops from parking by reservoir at NO260598. Creigh Hill South Top, then Creigh Hill. Continued to N, descending to beallach W of Craig of Balloch. Climbed Milldewan Hill and then along easy undulating ridge to Corwharn. Continued to Eskielawn and Bruntshields, Black Binks and a short steep ascent to Cuilt Hill. Descended to track and road back to start. Mist and rain for much of route.RobertP18/03/2023
Cat Law & Corwharn from Lednathie. 5 of 7thekirkie pirate02/03/2023
Anticlockwise circular walk from now-deserted Cormuir (checked with passing farmer, OK to park away from farm shed doors). Track / vague ATV track all the way. Met two deer shooters on hill, but they did not think it was us that spooked the herd. Back by Hill of Adenaich.willyross03/02/2023

From Backwater res, after Eskilawn.BLACKHILL23/06/2021
From 2nd P place on E side of Backwater Reservoir, up through Clintlaw Corrie, then along the new deer fence Milldewan Hill - Cairn Corse - Corwharn (good track on E side of fence, but two 'gates' have to be climbed), descended SW to forest edge at NO281641, then steeply down edge of clearing and a green ride to forest road that leads all the way back to <1km N of P placekdbennett13/06/2021
I had a part day to spare so just for a change from all the rest below went up from the Blackwater Reservoir from the SW. A nice route which I recommend for a short day. No path but an obvious line from gate to follow the forest edge on easy grass then straight along ridge with mix of little used estate tracks and easy pathless sections. Back the same way. I pulled off road on grass to park (just enough width for that) but there is a good car park less than half a mile along the road.dickscroop15/07/2020
hill of strone, bruntshields, eskielawn, corwharn repeat, hill of adenaich from parking at track entrance 350m north of cormuir farm.robertphillips14/12/2019
Who can resist a circular walk over 3 Marilyns? Parked at the end of Westerton track, up the road to Balintore castle track, then grassy track straight uphill past the quarry, becoming a path, then joined main track up Cat Law. Followed the fence down, then track to Cormaud. Track fades so traversed down to col, and track to Corwharn. Good enough tracks to Milldewan Hill; followed fence (track) then grassy sheep tracks down to col. Up deer tracks and vague tracks to Creigh Hill. On to Cairn Plew and down to Middle Coul, and road back.Gill13/04/2019

I thought this was a Graham when I climbed it, after I'd done Cat Law.IanHHill01/09/2016
With Dave Roeder. From Glen Prosen Hostel (9:50) to Corwharn (12:15). Down fairly direct to col and along ridge to Cat Law (15:00). Soft snow, often waist deep on paths slowed progress. Nearly trod on a hare. Down to W Lednathie & back to hostel (17:30). Overcast & windy but clear.dbb29/04/2016
From Glen Prosen, Cormuir Farm to north east. Track now is excellent all way to col, easy walking, then follow fence line over featureless heather and knolls on good trails. Disappointing summit, was the cairn removed when Graham status was withdrawn?nordicstar24/01/2016
From Cormuir. Track all ok. Followed the fence from the bealach in the mist and rain.jenx24/01/2016

A lonely Graham, done in the face of deteriorating weather. Solothenomad28/01/2013
From Cormuir. Heavy heavy rain. Track badly churned by caterpillar traction, therefore left it soon and cut uphill. Went over to Hill of Strone and then ambled straight down in the dark and wetness. Is this the right hobby for November?Martin R22/11/2012
