Parked in the car park at the end of the track to Burnhead. Followed good forest tracks to exit the forest at 534838. Obvious path up onto Meikle Lump, eventually following the wall towards Meikle Millyea. Rough, boggy ground descending towards the beallach, then better walking to Milldown and Millfire. Cut across between the lochans and Meikle Lump on the way back, to avoid re-ascent. Lovely day and good views.LizH19/04/2019
