Mark Davidson walked up Bullman Hills on October 25th, 2012 [from/via/route] Extension to Walk c443 Round Hill & Bellbeaver Rigg from Garrigill when I went across Crossgill Pants. Very, very boggy & not recommended. Certainly not in late October! [with] Alone [weather] Wet & miserable - loved (most of) it!

Angela Moroney climbed Bullman Hills on May 18th, 2021 [from/via/route] kirkstone [with] Jane ludders [weather] sun wind

Kevin Foster bagged Bullman Hills on August 20th, 2018 [from/via/route] Cross Fell [with] Henry. [weather] cloudy with rain. - The descent off Cross Fell in a just west of north direction was straightforward enough if a little soggy underfoot. I then reached a good track which I followed past Geg's hut & on to Backstone Edge. Here I went off piste in a northerly direction descending down rough grass & then through bog. A line of grouse butts led me to the foot of a short but very steep climb to the first of two tops collectively known as the Bulman Hills. The second northerly top (although slightly lower than the other one) is the actual Nuttall as it rises by nearly 60 feet. The higher southerly top doesn't rise far enough above the col with Cross Fell so isn't a separate summit. I bagged both just to make sure! The descent off the ridge to join up with the old mine track belonging to the Cashwell mine workings was pleasant enough even though by now the weather had really closed in & the waterproofs were back on. The mine track soon rejoined the Pennine Way close to the turn off I'd taken earlier that day for Long Man Hill. From here it was a long descent in the rain & gathering gloom back to my starting point at Garrigill. I finally finished the walk at about 8.30pm thoroughly exhausted but happy with my lot.

Christine Shepherd hiked Bullman Hills on April 18th, 2017 [from/via/route] Walked from Garrigill on The Pennine Way then took detours to bag this & Long Man Hill. [with] On my own [weather] Bright & clear - Look out for beautiful purple fluospar on the way back to the Pennine Way alongside Cash Burn.

Ray O'hara summited Bullman Hills on February 7th, 2013 [from/via/route] Garrigill [weather] Cold, snow underfoot
