|2nd hill of 9 today on a route from Grimmet (on B741) to Maybole climbing Auchenroy Hill then Ssw to forest ride continuing past ride heading Sw then into firebreak then ENE to summit. Descent back but headed into another firebreak Sw to explore ground before returning to the wide ride then took ride Nw, Sw then Nw to exit the forest. Sounds complicated but satellite image shows rides and firebreaks clearly. Next hill Turgeny.||Dazingdale||14/05/2017|

|Not sure about agentmancuso's comments but the most obvious fire break took me to within 50m of summit !!||chalky1953||09/09/2015|
|Summit in the trees. From the trig, take the firebreak to the left, rather than the more obvious one slightly to the right. Best viewpoint is from the cairn SE of the trig.||agentmancuso||24/02/2008|
