|From Auchenhew Wood car park S side main rd (NS 0191 2170). Access track to Ballymeanochglen then FP leads on to Loch Garbad. Peeled off SE 100m before the Loch on a good firebreak that deteriorates along the forest edge but eventually leads steeply up to the trig pillar at summit. Backtracked to the Loch then on to Cnoc Croabhach.||jonglew||11/05/2018|
|Parked at waterfall car park to the south then followed forest tracks towards Loch Garbad where I 'enjoyed myself' nearly falling in the loch getting a geocache down a slippy bank in a 'cliff face'. Then retraced my steps to the picnic bench and down the path to the fire break I'd spotted on the way up, followed this firebreak until I reached the field which I hoped contained the trigpoint but I still had 190m to go, eventually spotted a wee path through the conifers and was soon near the trigpoint which I then spotted shining out with it's white coat. Took a track through the conifers direct from the trigpoint to the field, much easier to spot on the way back. Waterfall and library are well worth a look.||thejackrustles||18/11/2017|
|Parked at waterfall car park to the south then followed forest tracks towards Loch Garbad but 100yds before the loch you will see a fire break to your right, follow this firebreak untill you reach the field, go near to end of field then follow the steep heather climb untill you reach the dense forest and follow the tree line to the right for about 100yds. The trig is 35m inside the forest and is easilly seen. Then headed north to bag the Tump summit. Then a different ride to gain the track below the loch. Visited the Library in the woods on my return route.||Dugswell2||17/11/2017|
|2nd hill of 5 on a tough navigational challenge from Whiting Bay to the Lochside B&b south of Blackwaterfoot.
After Cnoc na Comhairle I headed West and NW on forest rides before turning sharp SE to a ride circumnavigating Cnoc na Garbad. A steep scramble took me to the tree crowned summit where I spent the next 20 minutes making sure I had located the highest point.||Dazingdale||09/05/2016|
|From Glenashdale Falls, along summit ridge hard going through recently planted trees. Superb views from the trig point at S end of ridge.||RichardM||01/08/1979|
