Passed over again on way from Clenrie to Little Millyea.agentmancuso11/06/2016
From Corserine- a fine high level walk over Millfire and Milldown. Visited the W top for views and suspecting it might be higher. It isn't but the views are fine, over Silver Flowe to the rocky summit of Craignaw and beyond. Trodden path continued down the NE ridge and had two alternative finishes. I chose the one through heathery knolls to the gate/ ride at GR 534838. Wild goats encountered on way down. Warm and sunny day.pwheeler12/05/2016
SMMC meet to Galloway, with Mary Stewart, Nic Bullivant and John Rooney.clashcityrocker24/06/2015
Solo. Parked up Glenlee and Garroch Estate road at entrance to track to Clenrie farm. Walked over Rig of Clenrie to Meikle Lump; electric fences! but jumped first at wall and gates at NX 539 828 allowed passage. Joined stane dyke to Meikle Millyea trig/cairn; went out to true summit then directly to Milldown and returned to MM trig for lunch. Returned by reversing uphill route. Overcast by thin cloud; occasional sunny intervals: hazy visiblility. Missed the opportunity to go to D/T Millfire - no knowledge of D/Ts - but returned to M direct from Forest Lodge and Memorial at a later date.trienbrae18/03/2015

From Forrest Lodge to Meikle Millyea, then along the ridge to Meaul and Cairnsgarroch. A long walk with the final descent through tussocks to Garryhorn quite a slog. The bridge over the Garryhorn burn is no more.borderterrier10/10/2010

By Polharrow Burn on Hans Heiberg road. Small soggy footpath to stile over deer fence. Cuckoo heard. Good path led straight up the prow with rocky sections to a substantial ruined stone wall to the top. A long pull on wet path by the wall over tussock to the top at 11.50. Huge pile of stones by column 8292.arranc30/04/2010
