|From road to E. Summit is in new broadleaf plantation.||sclater||07/07/2020|
|Parked where there are gates on either side of the road S of the summit. Took Minto's useful route, following the deer fence around to it's high point, circling round the summit. The summit appears to be, unfortunately, inside the plantation.||LizH||11/06/2020|
|13th and final tump of the day and this hill completed my 50th County on my 50th year, also completing East Ayrshire and thereby completing all of the Ayrshire tumps (North, South & East) plus the Irvine & Garnock catchment. Parked up NS43871 53559 then via gate to follow fenceline Wsw continuing along edge Sw then at a thicker post up and over the deer fence to explore the summit plateaux, recording 237m @ NS 43743 53468 and NS 43726 53506. Walked round quite a bit to make sure.
Back the same way to the car then I had to dash off to collect Lesley from Irvine station for the start of my 2nd week touring with her...||Dazingdale||28/09/2019|
|Parking very easy to the S of hill by gate entrances on both sides of road. Follewed S side of fence up pasture, alongside 6ft deer fence. At top of pasture, best way is to carry on following the deer fence, across a small fence, and then along an old wall. The deer fence and old wall loop around R (north). When wall ends, fence turns E, then N to the summit. Grass inside the fence is Very long (July).||Minto||03/07/2019|
|Parking quite difficult in this area but a pleasant walk up from Uplawmoor on very quiet lanes.||49pp||01/12/2018|

|up side of deer fence from the east.||robertphillips||30/06/2015|
|As Agent except about 15m before the deer fence swings right there is a lift and pull gate to give access to the plantation. High point seems to be about 65m a little E of S of the fence high point.||chrisbien||03/01/2015|
|From ESE. Top is outside plantation so no need to cross deer fence. Keep it on your RHS.||agentmancuso||02/01/2015|
