From windfarm car park, lots of late afternoon sunshine easy walk, followed by Greenock Morton v Ayr United.garyhoney29/10/2019
Control site on OMM at lochan next to summit. A second visit as OMM 2001 also visited the summit for a control. No such thing as windfarms on the hills back then. Guess I will be back in 18 years time in 2037 (!) once again?Chris Pearson27/10/2019

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

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
