Wandered up by a series of paths and tracks from Carrot. Good views from summit area.willyross08/11/2019
From Carrot, parked at junction, path through field then took northerly of the two paths to the top. Plenty of trucks on the Spine Road. Returned via the Southerly part of the loop.garyhoney28/10/2019
My 11th and final tump of the day, an evening outing from Ardochrig car park and a 9.38km out and back using the Southern outward route and the Northern return route. The routes converge at NS61034 46617. Sunset wind turbine scene on return route with bats flitting across the track and crows flying to their roost.Dazingdale27/09/2019
With E. An afternoon of sunshine and showers. From small parking area at the forest road end north of Ardochrig then along forest roads to trig point on Corse Hill.Beeliner01/09/2019
From Carrot, parked at junction, path through field signed and then good track all the way with signposts. trig at top with good views of a lot of Wind Turbines. With A&CPeterD26/08/2019
Up from Carrot farm, good quality tracks all the way.cjo21/07/2019
Highest point of Whitelee Windfarm. Started from Auldhouse near the Windfarm Substation. Took just under 2 hours. Pleasant afternoon hike on a well maintained track.Thomas McIlvaney15/10/2018
County top reached from a pull in area on a bend in the road before you get to Carrot farm north west of top. Walked down rd to a field just before the first house on the left where a path leads around the back of house to the track that heads for Corse hill. The track starts in the drive of first house but is padlocked and so the path in the field should be used to avoid upsetting the locals. Five and a quarter mile in two hours. Once on track signed all the way to the top on wide access roads.WAYNE ROWLETT03/08/2018
Solo. Parked a little north of Carrot. Took well defined path on left about 50m before the first house of Carrot; this joins an old track that winds up through the forest. Higher up rather a lot of wind turbines and tracks. Drizzle and cloud on descent.pwbellarby17/06/2018
On warm day w sunny patches from Carrot Farm. Spent 15 mins sitting on trig. Rounsfell17/05/2018
Bike in along windfarm roads from Soame Bridge, on minor road to the west. Write-up at:
Evening walk up the forest/windfarm track from Carrot Farm...good views north over Hamilton to the Clyde. Windfarm city...N.Morters29/08/2017
A few parking spaces at the forest roadend north of Ardochrig (NS638468), then 25 minutes cycling along a very good track to by the summit. This was actually my second attempt: first time, parked at Carrot, accidentally took the track to Myres Hill and didn't have time to do it right...Pete R26/08/2017
Parked at wind farm gate 200 metre north of Carrot. Took the path on the left which is about 50 metre before house on the left as you walk to Carrot. 90 minutes and just over 5 miles return. Wet but pleasant solo walk.bolton30/05/2017
3/3 (Drumgoyne/Earl's Seat/Corse Hill)Fergalh29/05/2017
Second visit with Chris Peart. Parking near Carrot was a little tricky, with the farmer, politely, requesting us to leave the way clear for heavy lorries. Lots of cones are now spread around to discourage careless parking. Fortunately, there is a spot 200m back north, beside a wind farm gate. Otherwise, a boring trudge in drizzle and wind.Colin Crawford20/04/2017
From Carrot with Colin Crawford.Chris Peart20/04/2017
A lovely summer morning walk up from Carrot Farm.Dugswell203/06/2016
Park just before Carrot Farm, left before farm and followed signposts to summit, very wet track, wet and windy on summit with very little views, with Dave.Hutchie128/01/2016
Ascended from North w Jenx. Parked at Carrot, diversion around homestead. Took old track all way to summit trig, straightforward. 1 hour return. This old track was here long before the windmills, which Mark do not improve the walk one bit!nordicstar24/11/2015
The old track in from the north is pleasant until the wind farm road joins it.jenx24/11/2015
Ascended from the south. Parking is tricky from this direction. Mindful of the cold welcome at Laigh Alderrstocks mentioned in MarHoFN 2008, we eventually found a place to park just east of East Browncastle at NS 63280 43436. This extended the walk to 12.6 km. We followed the lane west then north to its end, then windfarm dirt roads NW, N, NE, W, N, W and NNE to the summit. Returned the same way. This hill must once have been a wonderful wilderness, but sitka plague has rather ruined it - though many of the areas have been cropped. I'd never thought I'd write this, but the walk is made marginally more interesting by the vast windfarm! The wind turbines, for once, are a godsend. Access before them must have been ghastly. With AT and JT on a dull, but dry, cloudy day.Man of Kernow129/11/2014
Good tracks from Carrot up to ugly windfarm.AndrewFinnimore13/10/2014
A long hike through the wind farm!Chris Mac14/09/2014
from carrot good tracks all the way to summit.robertphillips30/04/2014
Easy walk from Carrot along forest/windfarm tracks.martin_hall21/09/2013
Highest point of a giant windfarm. From the NW, starting from just N of Carrot. A signposted path bypasses the dwellings and leads into the forest. Old maps do not show the many new tracks, some of which lead only to turbines.Topographer5726/07/2012
From farm at Laigh Alderstocks. Not much ascent but windfarm tracks wander about a lot. Forest on map mostly gone. Trig on top, next to Turbine 104 and empty but barbed-wire fenced compound.Aye Jimmy12/10/2011
Easy first one for the year. Up woodland path from Carrot in the snow.tcrannoch09/01/2011
Started at the Whitelee Windfarm visitor centre. Got a decent map of the winfarm roads. Had gone there to run to the hill and back - ended up doing over 15 miles. Hard work for a little lump. Should have started at the other end of the spine road - or uderekblackburn04/10/2010
Ascended many times from Carrot and from Windfarm VC. Great views over Glasgow from summit.quadbarrel12/06/2010
Dry, overcast but clear, soft snow, good views.iangalbraith17/01/2010
The trig point is next to Turbine 104 on the spine road from Whitelee Wind Farm Visitor Centre.neimcv09/11/2009
Small hill with a good few windmills. Access difficult through wooded area. Short day.Jimbob21/02/2009
Walked up from Carrot along forest track and then new windfarm roads. Returned via Carrot Moor Farm to the north east for a change but route is not recommended due to boggy conditions and GOMLs at Farm.andy14/02/2009
Revisit. From NW (Carrot) mapped track to NS597470; wind farm track continues roughly on line of old track to summit (turbine 104 just below trig S1604). Thick mist.RHW13/09/2008
While there still was a radar. Foggy and wet.gettingonabit01/06/2008
Lots of wind turbines being built on top.petemckin01/03/2008
I'd leave this one alone for the next few months folks. More fun dodging lorries on the M74 than making your way thru the windfarm/open cast construction site.PeteF20/07/2007
Up from Carrot: pleasant enough until I met the windfarm construction work close to the summit. Took a firebreak out to the west from a little north of the summit towards Drumduff Hill. At the end of the break I emerged into an awful morass.campagvelocet23/02/2007
Pleasant stroll through pine forests along good path, good views on hill on a clear day. Start from Carrot farm near Eaglesham.Philonehalf11/08/2006
Track up from Carrot - before the turbines arrived. Trig easily found (;-)chriswatson19/06/2006
Last of quite a few ascents.ARM28/12/2005
