An excellent break from the M74. Parked in Wiston and followed the path. Saw two white mountain hares near the top but only encountered patches of snow at the summit. Bitter wind on top so we didn't stay too long to admire the views. Massive prehistoric cairn on top.mindlessflogger20/12/2014

From Fallburn. Walked across to Scaut Hill after climbing Tinto. Cloud down to 400m, so no views. clear, often wide path all the way to the summit. Quite busy, given the weather.PaulH19/05/2013
Our final day on the Scotland 2013 trip. We bagged Tinto by the easy route up from the north, where the runners set out from. 4.4 mile round trip, we used the same route up and down taking just over 2hrs at a gentle amble as still tired from walking on Arran for 10 days.jonglew17/05/2013
Quick stop off on the way north to the Highlands. Wet & windy. See my blog post for more details:

Solo. From car park near Fallburn on well trodden path to summit of Tinto. Higher up there is a choice of two paths although this is not shown on OS 1:50,000 map. On the summit is a gigantic bronze-age cairn, 45m in diameter, and on top of this is a recently erected view indicator, not quite finished. There is a trig point to one side, not on the cairn, so the trip point is not at the highest point although it may well be on the highest natural point.pwbellarby09/09/2012
From Fallburn with Alexander - his first 2000' hill. Warm, busy.agentmancuso12/08/2012
