Opposite the phone box in Trinafour there is space to park. I then walked up the road and took the track to Big Wood. The track ends as you enter the woods and i just headed upwards from here. I then came to a flatish area before reaching a brick wall which i followed uphill, taking me through fallen trees to what appeared the highest point but no sign of a cairn. I then went to the other side of the wall to a fire break and was here i spotted the summit cairn. I returned roughly by route of asscent before driving down to Dunkeld to walk Newtyle Hill. I parked on the loop road in a parking area beside Bluebells, then walked along the road to the waymarked signpost. Followed the track up to the mast, then up beyond the mast before i came to a wall. I then made my way over the heather, firstly to the high point over to the right, which wasnt the summit before making my way to the summit. I returned to the track and back to the car. 1HR 30 mins for each hill.

Nice one, JC - thought about Newtyle Hill when up in this area recently but opted for Birnam Hill instead as my better half was wtih me and we needed a walk with a path. Had to be nice to her as it was our 25th :roll: - cheers :)
