6th and final top of the day, after High Mount back to intersection then East becoming rougher and past quarry that again looked quite high to park up beside track heading North then cut through trees and over mossy wall to small ridge with high point beside conifers but near open area. Back a similar way.. I stopped at the quarry to the Sw and recorded a higher point at the rim next to trees. Again it seems that HP should be at the quarry.Dazingdale21/09/2019
From NW, passed now vanished Darntaggart. Grubby at first but easy parking and fast approach, then along edge of trees & in by old wall. Trees hanging with moss, amazing looking, wall round top area too. Last Yeaman on LR70.agentmancuso19/01/2019

From north across reclaimed opencast bog. Once in trees easy going for an the region (Ayr/ Dumfries and Galloway hills. Via trig pillar and martyrs grave following fence lines and firebreaks. Summit is sparse native woodland with heavy lichen and moss cover. The fire breaks are very wet do not attempt after a particularly wet period.cjo11/11/2017

After Stannery Knowe. High Mount has quite the spookiest summit area which I've ever seen - a moss covered old wall surrounding gnarled and misshapen trees, covered in drapes of feathery moss. Wonderful.Colin Crawford10/12/2016
