1st of 12 tops on a 33km round in mainly wet conditions. Parked up in a hardstanding area near cottages down from the water station then up via field edge and up over track to high ground outside forest then over fence to push through trees to reach cairn, recording 476m @ NS 62587 06727, continuing along field edge to Struthers Brae although also visited spot height inside trees, which was a wasted effort really as it is part of the Struthers Brae terrain..Dazingdale22/09/2019
Round of Craigbranreoch, Cannock, Black Hill, Struther's Brae and Yarngallows Knowe. Pleasant that highpoint was only 30m inside trees and sufficient clearing to get GPS reading. Diagonally down to waterworks CP mainly on 4wd track. Lovely circuit apart from the windfarm.Thearlaichdubh12/04/2019

From winfarm across tussocky terain. Summit is in small clearing 20 m into trees. Descent back to waterworks. On faint quad trackcjo29/10/2017
Directly up from the road (wind farm car park) along telegraph poles, then easy and gentle broad ridge. There's no avoiding the final tussle with the treesColin Crawford05/05/2017
From Struther's Brae. Part of an 11 summit clockwise circuit of Glen Afton. Hardest summit of the day - in the trees. Obvious knoll in clearing. Enter trees about 20 m of two tall upright posts, or 20m left of corner post. Summit is only about 20-30 in the wood. Continued along ridge to broad col before Boltcraig Crag, then NW down steep slope, and followed power lines straight down the hill to the road. There are no trees to fight through. Wouldn't recommend it as a way up - except to chrisbien, but he's already been up here.Minto05/06/2016
