Left the car in Largs for an easy 10.5k round the two hills. Walked down the road to nr Clashfarland Point, up SW skirting the cattle, then on through the mud to Barbay Hill. Last Tump in Section 27A.agentmancuso21/03/2019
Parked at The Lion on the seashore, 180548. Straight up the RHS of the rock. Take secateurs, brambles. Easy after that, no mud or farmers. Sunshine, great views and mild, nearly warm. No cafe on a Monday.iangalbraith12/03/2018
Just me. Horrible decent off. Better to retrace steps and go back to the farmMountain Goat07/05/2017
Tried route via Craigengour per Mainman below. Horrible, ankle deep in mud due to cows and calves, also met very angry farmer who stopped me from going back the same way. The Balskillet route looks marginally better. A good hill to do when it is dreich.Thearlaichdubh16/04/2017
Ferry from Largs, B899 past Ballochmartin, farm road to Craigengour. Where road turns left into farm, right through two gates on rough track which continues uphill after a third gate, though becoming vestigial in wet grass. Windy but dry with weak sunshine. Wide but hazy panorama: Holy Island just visible but Arran peaks in cloud. Back much the same way to ferry and Largs.mainnirnamfiadh03/10/2016
AFter my Wee Cumbrae adventure Jim dropped me off on the Eastern side not too far from this hill. I scrambled up a gully thick with bracken and brambles until I was able to use trees to haul myself up. A short section of dense woodland with brambles Followed before emerging on plateaux and then easily up to grassy bump containing the summit. Descent again through rough terrain en-route to Barbay hill.Dazingdale21/09/2016
Parked in road opposite track to Ballikillet then over cut in wall into overgrown path up through woods. Around edge of field to avoid nervous cows with calves and then up through boggy fields (Davy's Dub) to Cairn at top. After a few pics of the great views of Little Cumbrae, a dark cloud came over and hit me with rain and hail. Returned to car wet through but smiling after my mini adventure.JohRvs08/08/2016
Chris's route. Parking 1/2 on pavement.jimbloomer06/06/2016
