Beginning from Loch Trool I followed the forest track and the turned off and made my way up to the summit of Curleywee (674m). From there I dropped down to Bennan Hill and White Bennan Hill before then climbing back up to Bennanbrack and onto the highest point of the day at Lamachan (716m). I then dropped down to Mulldonanch and finished with a difficult descent through tussocks and felled forest to Loch Trool. Including a walk around the Loch at the end I clocked up about 15 miles on a dry sunny day.meltdiceburg22/04/2019

Somewhat dominated by surrounding higher peaks but a definite summit nonetheless. Three outcrops of similar height but northern probably highest. On to Curlywee on a superb sunny day.Denise 24/03/2018

4th hill of five on an alternative Southern Upland Way route from Bargrennan to St John's Town of Dalry, climbing Borgan Hill (and wasting a lot of time doing so) Craignaw, Lamachan Hill and then following the ridge of the 'Scars of Bennanbrack' to arrive at these knobbly rock outcrops. There are three vying for attention and i visited them all. Beautiful views from this location.Dazingdale09/05/2015
