Up track from A714 SW of hill. Due E from high point to trig (BH). Firebreaks to wall which bisects CB and GH. First CB (cairn) then GH (outcrop by tree).chrisbien26/06/2018
1st of 6 hills today. Bus from Girvan to Glen Trool then a walk to visitor centre cafe, opening at 10.30am for soup and coffee. Gloves recommended for this area. Back to road (cycle route 7) then veering off to walk over clear-felled section to meet track then headed W and Sw on previous forest ride but now replanted heading Nw on next forest ride and then shorter Sw section before following fenceline to craggy outcrops and 343m spot height. I didnt get anything higher tgan 338m however i explored Carn Balreggan to the Sw and this is a small open area with a Cairn snd i got 340m for this. Next hill: Balunton Hill.Dazingdale19/05/2017
