|5th and last of the day. Wind farm tracks have ruined this once wilderness. Future generations will look at these landscapes the same as we currently do when in old mining areas. Back to the car park at the water works. Solo.||bolton||05/05/2019|

|Loop of Glen Afton from water works (car park closed but plenty room) taking in Black Hill, Struther's Brae, Windy Standard, Alhang, Alwhat, Meikledodd Hill, Blacklorg Hill, Cannock Hill and Craigbraneoch Hill. Excellent walking though lots of new wind farm stuff (restricted currently as construction site).||SS||14/07/2018|
|An evening bonus summit after a circuit of the tops around Windy Standard. Drove from Afton CP to a pull in on the wind farm track leaving the Afton Water road a mile or so North. A haul up the hillside, past turbines and through patches of churned peat was recompensed by a deep red and gold sunset just as I reached the turbine top of Struther's Brae.||Nick Down1||24/03/2018|
