Drove on beyond Derry from the SE on an improving track after completing Craig Airie. Past the wind farm quarry to within 500 mts from top then up over demolished forest and replanting. Tough going. Summit is currently a large tree stump which will rot. NX 22817 74783. Plenty of wind farm personnel around but uninterested in my presence.Campbell Singer03/07/2018
Circuit of White Fell, Benbrake, Craigairie and Big Craigenlee from road near Glenkitten Fell. There's a vast new wind farm, whose tracks helped enormously. Benbrake now clear felled, turbine on one side, quarry and construction base on the otherColin Crawford24/03/2018
5th hill of 6 today and 1st log for this hill on an elongated loop from New Luce, climbing Craigbernoch Fell, Big Craigenlee, White Fell and Far Cairn, dropping down East side to meet up with turbine access road that profiles around flank. Veered off to climb direct from Western side over felled forestry that has a distinctive chequered appearance from afar. Summit is a previously forested knoll close to solar powered weather receiving station. Summit is close to felled tree. Descent: Took track in middle of highest land that led to a shale quarry with huge drop so traversed this till steepness lessened to enable me to get onto another turbine access track heading for Craigarie Fell.Dazingdale16/04/2017
