From wind farm car park. Very easy. About 90 minutes of plodding on a road actually.Jhimmy13/05/2018
Pleasant walk up wind farm track from the north. Good views.Winterfloodian01/05/2018
Parked at the end of the Windfarm track, an easy walk up to the summit and back.Chris Mac21/04/2018
Parked at the layby. The windfarm road gives good access to the east of the summit then an easy walk to the top. Solo 75 minute return.bolton19/11/2017
With Gill Stevens. From layby due N, and along wind farm access road.jonglew16/11/2017
A perfect hill for a quick stroll on the way from Loch Eck to Arran. Nice and easy up the windfarm track, and a short off piste climb to the top over nice, friendly tussocks (good firm mossy gaps in between). Nice summit, nice views.Gill16/11/2017
Third ascent of this one, accompanying Chris Peart. Nice to meet Gill and Jon as we went upColin Crawford16/11/2017
Up the windfarm track with Colin Crawford - met Gill and Jon on the way.Chris Peart16/11/2017
Quick evening walk returning from Arran. From the A760 car park, up the wind turbine road before it skirts the hill, then an AV track up the grassy Heath. Summit zig zag over various bumps.N.Morters12/07/2017
Usual route from the A760. Straight up (due south) to the summit from the wind farm track. Tramped round all conceivable highest points. Lovely views.Owen B19/05/2017
5th hill of 6 today on a route from West Kilbride to Largs via Gill hill, Glenton hill, Caldron hill and Kaim hill. It felt like a right slog to get here. I Climbed around Lairdside and had rest of my lunch and then Climbed to the top on a bearing. Walked close to 400m Cairn and wind turbines close to my right. Eventually arrived at the Loch and summit Cairn close by. I Climbed All the other bumps to make Sure including Ne Cairn before continuing onto Brown hill.Dazingdale20/09/2016
With Tony from N.jimbloomer05/06/2016
From layby on A760 to N, with Jim B. Afterwards continued to Brown Hill.Tony J05/06/2016
Parked just off road to North by turbine cluster entrance. Good car park. With Jenx plodded up the road to first main trig, then cut across the moor back to East. Would be better to leave the turbine road on its final stretch uphill, look for a cairn on skyline and make for that, cuts the corner off saving 15 mins and a bit of bog trotting. Another hil with an unpleasant turbine cluster on top.nordicstar25/11/2015
Wind turbine track useful, but better to cut the corner, certainly on the way down.jenx25/11/2015
blaeloch hill and brown hill from wind farm cp with renee after work.robertphillips02/09/2015
Detour on way back home from Glengoyne for RN's 1000th. Started from lay-by near Catburn. Sorry I did not check this one out before climbing, the vegetation was dry and short but the windfarm tracks would have been easier on the feet than sidestepping the pervasive tussocks.Topographer5722/04/2015
Using windfarm road from the N.AndrewFinnimore11/10/2014
Run out with GoskaMountain Goat14/08/2014
Started from carpark on Kilbirnie/Largs road for windfarm. Walked via windfarm access road until first turbine, then climbed onto plateau.julcrk22/09/2013
With Billy and Donny via new road to windmills from Largs to Kilbirnie road. Took in all possible tops.russell6101/03/2013
A walk from the Kilbirnie to Largs road using the wind farm road and then a half kilometre struggle across the heather and bogs to the summit which was rather uninspiring. We did see the Blae Loch though. Very misty and wet. With Eilidh and Dad.islamidget26/12/2012
Solo Uisdean2502/06/2012
Done with Bob, Adrian & Mark after Wee Cumbrae. Started in good visibility however this did not last but bagged Brown Hill, a P30 on way down in the drizzly mist.Dugswell207/04/2012
from catburn over rough ground.robertphillips06/02/2012
From lay-by on A760 at NS23921 57554 via Brown Hill and boggy col to its south. Windfarm being built on plateau. Unsightly track from A760 will at least provide easy dry-shod access to unmarked summit.Man of Kernow113/02/2011
999th Scottish marilyn. Up from the wind farm construction site (Blaeloch has fallen). Over Brown Hill and wandered about trying to find the highest point. My money is on the northern top.fasgadh18/12/2010

High cloud, mild, tiny hail shower near top, good views,iangalbraith02/05/2010

There is a cairn near the 400m spot height on the map (NS2391354785) - this is a better viewpoint than the actual summit, and is also quite close to the aircraft wreckage from 1944.neimcv21/10/2009
Parked to north and bogtrotted over Brown Hill to top. Not as desperate as reported. On way back from Jennifer's memorial meet on Coraddie.chriswatson14/04/2008
From Fairlie Station, up Fairlie Glen and down round Kelburn Park to Largs. Slipped over going up and going down, getting rather muddy and wet in the process. I should not have done this in trainers.Alan Moore27/10/2005

Summit visited on Clyde Muirshiel KIMM 2001 with Darren. 19th on Long Score.Chris Pearson28/10/2001
