There is a small parking area at grid on the B711 just past Deanburnhaugh. From the parking area, cross over the bridge. Turn left before the stone cottage, Muselee Cottage. Keeping the cottage on your right, follow the finger post pointing uphill through the gate onto the old drove road track. Keep the cottage and later the woodland on your right.
At Broadlee Loch continue uphill, once you reach higher ground the track becomes more visible. Crossing the ford, ascend a grassy path up Birneyknowe, where there is a cairn. Continue past the cairn to the tarmac road, which you follow back to the starting point.
