Logged Descriptions  (logged by 12 users)ByDate of Ascent
Space for a car where minor road ends nr Kilmacolm Low Dam before Hardridge. Mist & ice along track then stumble through the snowy heather. On to cairn on Knockminwood Hill then eventually found remains of old railway on way back to ascent route. Rain on the way down removed much off the ice, but made it feel colder.agentmancuso05/02/2019
Pathless plod through heather from Creuch Hill. Final Inverclyde TuMP. No views as surrounded by higher hills. Back to raod so could watch the royal wedding. Not.Thearlaichdubh19/05/2018
Parked near Rottenburn Bridge on a misty morning. Did Creuch Hill followed by Knockdal Ring then on to North Burnt Hill as the mist lifted. Wet feet most of the way.Dugswell218/06/2017
P at NRB. Sort of track under the pylons then ATV from 27391 67147.chrisbien07/03/2017
creuch hill, knockdal ring, north burnt hill, from the west, parking start of track NRB, Final inverclyde tump.robertphillips17/02/2017
My final Inverclyde tump. From E, Hardridge Farm road, parked at unoccupied cottage (NS321677) just past turnoff to farm itself. Good track, boggy in a few places, then 830m of knee deep snowy heather ensuring I earned my completion! Summit quite distinctive once reached. Mapped cairn with grassy top 30m to SW about same height. Quite a few other tops within 500m to W/SW but 25k map suggests next highest contender c.5m lower.RHW20/11/2016
4th hill of 8 today on a route from Muirshiels Country park visitor centre to Wemyss Bay on a windy overcast day with the imminent chance of rain, I climbed Windy Hill, Craig Minnan and the Heddles, taking a track that eventually terminates in a bowl shape with a rough ascent through bog to the summit. Creuch Hill seen ahead and also in view are Knockinwood hill.Dazingdale23/09/2016
Approached from Creuch Hill, through deep heather atop spongy moss. Delightful. And similarly arduous going en route to North Burnt HillColin Crawford10/02/2015
Approach from west not recommended.campagvelocet29/09/2011
