|P junct to N, boggy track to NW of top then up, reedy grass mainly. Sky & sea same pewter colour, so Ailsa Craig looked like it was levitating. Nicer top than expected.||agentmancuso||07/03/2019|
|Train to Dalry, then quiet minor road to Dykes farm. Head into fields on left just before and follow imaginary track through fields with muddy gates to summit which is a good viewpoint. Lots of sheep tracks and mainly well grazed grass.||Thearlaichdubh||25/10/2017|

|3rd and last hill of the day from Dalry station having Climbed Whin and Pondery hill. I Took the road upto Dykes farm and then on a grassy Track to just past Raeside straight to summit. Encountered herds of cows en-route but they were All on the other side of the fence-line. Highest point is marked by a few stones on a grassy ridge. I explored the bumps nearby and I got 220m But nothing exceeded 223m. Descent Se But decided to climb Colwinnining hill. Explored high ground to South then via quarry buildings to ridge on N/NEside. Sheer drops to side and DID not feel safe But awesome views. Used quarry Track to ridge to reach B784 down to T junction and then turned right for about 300m to reach the Romeo & Juliet Inn, my digs for the night.||Dazingdale||18/09/2016|
