|After Croy Hill. Up the John Muir Way then opting for easier south side to west end and up to well decorated trig with dog walkers’ convention taking place. Back down via northern side and back to car. Very warm day, great clear views.||Jubilado||12/07/2019|
|A thoroughly enjoyable walk from Croy along the John Muir Way and to the summit and trig on Castle Hill. Then there's the matter of the alternative summit. After two false starts, I crossed the ditch by the military road and thrashed through fallen trees, high bracken and conifers to the steeply domed top. It is - unfortunately - almost certainly higher than the trig summit.||Nick Down1||23/05/2018|
|YSM0465 Castle Hill. One of 5 trigs planned on the way to Arran. Only managed 2, this being the second! Easy enough walk to this, parked on the road at N55° 57.435' W4° 04.984'and followed the track all the way to the hill fort. Lovely spot great views.||thejackrustles||16/11/2017|
