A hands in pockets saunter via the mast track.Chris Peart26/03/2018
A quick ascent from the mast access track then back over rough ground, easy to spend longer at the summit taking photos than climbing the hill! Great views of Arran, Ayrshire and the Galloway Hills.Chris Mac04/02/2018

3rd hill of 6 today, having climbed Kirkland hill from Achensoul then after leaving car in Ayr walked along coastal path, veering off to climb Heads of Ayr, dropping down to track past attractive burn to main road then took minor road up to connect with transmitter tower access road. Climbed in and out of compound and over to trig. Rain clouds approaching and getting windier. Next hill: Drumshang hill.Dazingdale13/05/2017
From viewpoint (298164) along ridge to masts. Pass on southern side of masts and continue across 2 fences, both with stiles, to summit. Sunny, but too hazy for good views. Returned the same way.Winterfloodian01/05/2017
Whilst in the area, I realised, quite coincidentally, that I'd ascended this hill on the same day fifteen years ago. A good excuse for a second visit, by the mast access roadColin Crawford14/02/2017
