From Roadside Cottage, parking on verge, NO302552. Up track then path to NO302562, where old gate on R in EF. Up The Carrach to another old gate beside pond at NO310568, then to col at NO313570, where met nasty BWF with electric strands on both sides - almost impossible not to make contact - either electric was off or Goretex is a good insulator. And another, older BWF, next to the first.Isbjorn08/06/2019

Bot of a boring hill with a lot of barbed wired fences. Some quite hightallblond02/07/2017
Following Creigh Hill. Parked a road end leading to Kinclune. Walked up to farm, then through easy grass fields almost due north. Gates at top of each field just the last fence below summit to straddle. Damp, clouds rolling in and drizzle.N.Morters11/03/2017
Weather fair.MountainMac20/01/2016
Asked local advice on where to park for this Marilyn. So parked on the access road to Kinclune. Easy ascent form there. Anyhow the farmer nearly lynched me on my return for walking on 'his' hill and parking on the drive way. Avoid this if you can.Play2End01/11/2015
Access from N was blocked by pheasant shooters. Also angry farmers wife at Auldallan wouldn't let me access the burn crossing. However, having parked dodgily near Auldallan it was straight forward ascent of an imposing hill, though access from S would be better.Thearlaichdubh20/12/2014

parked at minor road junction muir of holm woods road to kinclune then through fields to top.robertphillips01/11/2014
From the north, E of Auldallan. Not the best access point I think, but easy enough route once on the hill.amswanston31/10/2014
My 1000th Marilyn! Farmer's daughter said I could park next to farm (Kinclune). Short tramp across farmland . Not my favourite kind of hill.AndrewFinnimore25/09/2014
W Jenx, unlike others parked to North after Cat Law. Room for 1/2 cars in verge-side parking near two gates at @GR 304584. Top visible across fields. Angle down to wet area, cross with aid of wall. Old track up otherside and across fields to track then onto hill. Back nearly the same way, watch the burn it can be tricky to cross! No stones/cairn on top, just grass!!nordicstar29/06/2014
From RHW's start position. Parking on N verge between dwellings.jimbloomer15/05/2014

After doing Hare Cairn in morning. From B951 using road past Kinclure. Tore breeks on barbed wire fence SE of summit. At least electric fence was not working.russell6115/04/2013
From road junction near Broadmuir, past Kinclune and then over the fields. Friendly horses as well as their riders! 'Pile of stones at top' is a bit of an exaggeration. Good viewpoint though.Martin R23/11/2012
traversed hill north to southAlisonFox66 09/03/2012
Sunny, calm, cold, snow and ice, good views.iangalbraith16/12/2011
From road to S up lane from Roadside Cottage, then round back of a narrow wood. Bit of a dip between that and Mile Hill. Met people on horses, seemed friendly. Came back more directly.Aye Jimmy19/06/2011
Ascended from the north on a damp, misty afternoon.JohnW04/08/2009
Crept up from N, rooks, a pair of buzzards and galloping heifers announcing my presence to the shooters in Aucharroch Wood.Eddie30/08/2003
Parked on B951. Agricultural route with beasts running wild on bridal path. Arran on short lead. Long grass and thistles up to horizon, steeply down again over double BWF and on grass to top at 14.00. No cairn.arranc20/07/2003
