Parked at Green Well of Scotland, following the main Cairnsmore track to the SW slopes of Willieanna, going over the wall to the summit at a barbed wire free section. Over Dunool and the Black Shoulder to the Cairnsmore, buffeted by a strong south-easterly. Down and up to Beninner and down again and briefly up to Knockwhirn, where an embedded stone seems to be the summit. Across some fairly rough terrain and along a persistent electric fence before crossing where the wire is a single strand by a low point in a wall, and up the rocky slopes of the Craig of Knockgray. A final barbed wire wall defence persuaded me to follow the wall down to North Liggat and walk back through Carsphairn.Nick Down114/04/2019
