Parked to SSW where the track starts at the bend in the minor road. Followed the forest track and the path from NS47479 54537 (just after a track junction) leading to the large cairn. The summit was a small cairn in the grass about 50m SE. Pleasant walk.LizH11/06/2020
Circular walk from home.Grinner06/06/2020
Parked at Harelaw then a quick walk up the boggy path to the summit cairn, well hidden in the tall grass just along from the much bigger cairn. Not as good a viewpoint compared to Duncarnock. Walked down the other side and back along the forestry track to the start.Chris Mac12/10/2019
10th and final tump of a 26.6km circuit from Harelaw car park, climbing Knockenae, Dareduff, James's Hill, Cairn Hill, Floak, Byreside, Mearns Law, Duncarnock and Dyke Hill, descending South then Sw over wall onto lane then around property to use boardwalk across edge of Snypes Dam to forest track curving round to the West then up through trees to reach edge of deciduous woodland and steep ground. I followed the fenceline Westwards where the gradient lessened slightly then up through the trees and onto the open ground, through the long rough grass to reach the top. I recorded 262m @ NS 47669 55101. Nice hill! East Renfrewshire completed! I descended Ssw keeping within fenceline to reach intersection of fences then Sw over grassland to reach track heading West, sometimes detouring via adjacent woodland as it was completely waterlogged but I emerged back onto the lane to reach the car park.Dazingdale28/09/2019
From car park to SSW. Various signs saying No entry due to forestry operations, but nothing happening at 22:20! Network of tracks and paths lead to very close to the summit.Minto03/07/2019
From Dyke Hill.Farm track to west of Dyke Hill summit to southern tip of Snypes Dam. From near there path goes round hill in clockwise direction and up to summit from south. Headed north down lovely path through woods to reach farm track and then road back to Neilston.russell6113/12/2018
Sparkling winter's day, would be very muddy otherwise.hillsman07/01/2018
