braw c u the morra 9.30 lookin forward to it.
OCP - the path i took is the steps opposite where you come out from the wee hill between loch ore and benarty. basically push up all the way.
note sure where the other route up is - how do ye get to it from loch ?
My wife went for a run this afternoon the same way you did, from Lochore over Harran Hill woods then up the steps then going left through woods onto Benarty.
To find the other track, go left onto road as you come out of track from Lochore then just over a mile along road you should see the dirt road on right. It might have a metal barrier, jeez can't remember, but no problem if there is. This dirt road passes up behind the end of rifle range so you'll have to check to see if red flag is flying on hillside directly behind and above range. They were shooting today but they're not often there.
This track ends up on the edge of open hillside. It's about half a mile to first turn behind/above range.
There is another track that goes up to the telecoms mast that is on hillside. This starts just over half a mile from end of track from Lochore. From memory it starts from a field gate in the bottom right corner of the field, then heads up to the mast then open hillside to same place as top of zigzag behind range.
I've ridden up this one then part way down zigzag turning off right to head down through woods, then tracks through fields to main road then back tae ma hoose the other side of main road fae Benarty hill.
This site is good for finding tracks, shows up the track to mast well.
Cannae mind if you have to download it or register to zoom aboot.
