After Laggan Hill. Descended to Fauldribbon. Some gorse problems on the way.Also visited trig point after summit.NormanW18/08/2017
5th Tump of the day although 6th hill on a rainy day route from Maybole to Girvan via 7 hills, climbing Knockbrake (Craigdow, non-tump out and back) Kirk Hill, Quarrel Hill and Craighead Hill, exploring the Baron's stone of Killochan, a huge glacial erratic where the Baron's used to meet to sort out their affairs. I accomplished a covert crossing of the Water of Girvan on a private footbridge onto a minor road to Old Dailly then briefly on the B734 before using a gate to climb diagonally across to follow the Camregan Glen. I used a gate at the top to cut across the now easy to tackle streams before heading Sw to the Trig and then South to the summit Knoll, a raised section with thick coarse reeds/sedge growing in it, also explored area 30 m SE, that is a similar height. Continuing to Troweir Hill.Dazingdale15/05/2017
