P quarry gates to N, uneasy few hundred yards along main drag then right through gate on to older tracks marked on 1:25k that go all the way to the forest road, followed to obvious former FB N of summit, which is a short distance in trees. Met friendly farmer on the way back, out to check if all the yowes had been tuppit.agentmancuso30/11/2019
Stannery knowe and high mount a bike round starting at coal entrance 4808017409 gates were open could have drove to both hills, hp either in trees, furrows just outside to the west or clearfell area to the west, also visited quarry spoil heaps made it 374m on my gps, it has some trees and weeds growing on the top but does not look if it has been had its final shape and landscaped and it might never be done.robertphillips24/11/2019
5th hill of 6 today, found the B road from Cumnock then via the coal roads, parking up beside the Quarry. I climbed to the top of the quarry and recorded 375m, visiting the highest point on the perimeter and the levelled centre then went across the quarry workings dropping down to the forest but windfall pushed me further East before i was able to get into the forest proper. Highest point recorded was in area of clear-fell, having visited the potential high point just off the firebreak. I took a slightly different route back but it still involved climbing in and over trees before i could scramble up across the quarry area back to the car. I cannot see why the summit is not at the top of the quarry. Drove over towards High Mount...Dazingdale21/09/2019

Essentially the same approach as CB. I found the firebreak making for the summit area but the map failed to make sense when I arrived, missing breaks, I suspect. Good thrash in the trees to be as sure as possible. Then east to High Mount, via new pylon line and muddy, motorway tracks.Colin Crawford10/12/2016
From B7046 using coal roads and forest tracks.SK small quarry S of track across felled area and through trees. Top not obvious. Track-road-track then due W through trees. Over 5ft wall to top of HM.chrisbien12/06/2016
