From NW. Track up from Kilwhannel goes all the way to the summit. Alternately cycled and pushed until track became too wet and degenerate for my bicycle to continue. Views included Ireland and Isle of Man.Topographer5715/10/2018
P verge before Kilwhannel, easy along the track, with Fiona. Final Marilyn in the Southern Uplands.agentmancuso11/08/2018

From Kilwhannel, as others.Chris Peart24/03/2018
Despite the OS map lying about he public road extending to Lagafater lodge, there's been a road grab by the landowner, and there's a private no sign just south of Barnvannoch. Never mind, it's a nice walk all the same, and the track up the hill is dead easy. Nice hill, with wonderful views.Gill23/03/2018
From Kilwhannel, then returned over Smyrton Hill, on way to weekend at Minnigaff.NormanW23/03/2018
2/4 Marilyn. Parked where the road turns to Kilwhannel followed track through several fields, onto grassy track and a bizzare parked going nowhere Hitachi truck near the top fence. Then short pull to summit trig. Fine views to Knockdolian the next target and Ailsa Craig and ArranN.Morters08/07/2017
Third visit, long round from LagafaterColin Crawford17/06/2017
4th hill of 6 today on a tough traverse with 70 litre rucksack from Barrhill station to Ballantrae climbing High Murdonochee, Cairn Hill of the Moil and Kilmoray, down to Nick of the Liberty and up along fenceline and then over to Trig and summit. Descent Sw to Leana Hill then Millcroon en-route to Milljoan hill.Dazingdale17/05/2017
Parked at 112813 just before the track to the farm. Great views, good underfoot and took just over 2 hours return. 5.8 miles solo.bolton07/07/2016
Bit of a hike from Kilwhannel but good track all the way to the top.AndrewFinnimore03/06/2016
Weather fair.MountainMac15/02/2016
Parked south of Barnvannoch then walked up the road to Lagafater Lodge, lodge big house more like. Hit the snow on track to Lodge then good track and path to summit. A very featureless moor, would not want to get lost on it in thick mist. Cloud was low so no views. Good little walk around 6.4 miles in total from where parked. 3 hour stroll. Company: Jake the Black Lab.iandesbottes18/01/2016
parked at road end at kilwannel, good track all the way to near the top,no views.robertphillips09/02/2015
W Jenx day after Ailsa Craig. Parked at lay by on A77 and took track past country house to its upper end. Spur down the hill across burn and back towards hill. Rough ground for a while up small burn - break out at 350 m onto hill and gain old coach road to near top. Lovely viewpoint.nordicstar27/04/2014
From road to Lagafater lodge - southern approach over many miles of remote moorland. As the map shows a public road to near Lagavater Lodge we parked at NX 13882 75905, ignoring 'private road' sign close to NX 13109 73147. As we were about to start the walk the factor drove by in landrover, stopped and accosted us and firmly, but politely, told us to leave. We drove back to beginning of private road sign, walking from there. This added over 3km of road walking each way to the walk. Passed the Lodge without incident, taking good track to col, then ATV track to summit. Returned the same way. Signs and friendly waive from shepherd implies walkers are tolerated - but not cars!marktrengove27/04/2014
With Mark Trengove and Steve Gillions after aborted Ailsa Craig landing. Previously passed within a few hundred metres of this top on 13/03/09.Alex C27/04/2014
