Lovely lovely lovely. Accessed from 2 different points on the MTB trails. Easiest foot access would be from Barnbarroch then follow the fireroad east as you enter the forest and I imagine Moyle Hill is signposted from here as there are signposts on the Red MTB route or follow the fireroad North and look for where the blue route joins the singletrack and go directly up the scree slope and follow the single track to the right at the top of this. Watch out for MTBers coming down the scree slope though as it's part of the Red Route.

Punishing walk up thru the dense woodland. Some mountain bike trails. Summit a little overgrown. Handy seat nearby. Good views to one side.

Went up from the mountain bike track. At the summit I found a cleared path running from north to south traversing the hill. This is signposted from the col at the south of the hill. I am not sure where the northern path starts. Summit now a wild bit of woodland and very attractive. Pillar is missing plug but is also freshly painted white.

vgc, no cap or plug, nice heathery summit, scattered trees, fine view. Mountain bike passes just W of trig, providing easy public access.

Slightly tricky to access this one through shrubbery and dense foliage. There may be a better way but I approached from Kippford up a forest track from Barnbarroch then joined a Forestry Commission MTB singletrack called Moyle Magic, up a short steep climb then followed it north eventually running alongside an old broken down wall until it began to descend then struck out east uphill to the northen end of the summit. The area is overgrown and views are obscured. There are a couple of small concrete pillars nearby possibly there has been a mast or aerial here in the past. I have logged it as good although the plug in the middle of the spider is missing.
