From layby at Greenfield then on to Bennan via the dam.sclater26/07/2020
First hill post Covid-19 lockdown. Parked in the layby opposite the track to Greenfield. Walking poles useful to avoid touching the low gate when crossing over. Good little path to the summit. Hazy views over Glasgow. Continued on to Bennan Hill.LizH02/06/2020
First hill after lockdown.Too warm to wander over to Bennan Hill so lounged around the summit.Antrim hills visible in the distance.ARM01/06/2020

1st of a 4tump loop, parking up in the layby, opposite the track to Greenfield at NS53934 50021, then a small path seems to head up to the 327m spot height, recording 335m @ NS 53159 50172 then along to some stones in the sedge. Onwards to Bennan Hill descneding steeply and along the edge of Bennan Loch...Dazingdale27/09/2019
Parked alongside the water works fence near entrance to South Moorhouse Farm. Up track to dam - some works in progress. Along dam wall, over fence then steeply up. Onwards to Bennan Hill - along the dam wall.Minto10/07/2019
From layby NW side B764 (NS 5393 5003). Good grassy track to the top. Trig surface block next to the cairn.jonglew04/05/2019
The easiest (and least boggy) access is probably along the Bennan Loch dam wall, over a wire fence then up grazed patches and sheep tracks through the hummocks onto a narrow footpath running just below the summit ridge to a memorial cairn at the top.summitter24/02/2019
Up via Bonnyton, down via the moor road from Eaglesham. Once of many.quadbarrel03/03/2018
From large layby opposite Greenfield to E. Went to Bennan first, there is a 4wd track which often disappears into the marsh. Attractive reservoirs. Driving wind and rain. Final East Renfrewshire TuMP.Thearlaichdubh24/12/2017
Tufty and boggy. Wide views.hillsman20/08/2017
Another walk up my local hill with great views of Arran and the hills to the north from the summit. Worth the minimal effort to reach the rounded top.Chris Mac13/08/2017
