Drove up track a couple of kilometres then out and up Bennan Hill, followed by Curlywee, Scars of Mildown, Bennanbrook, Lamachan Hill and Larg Hill then down to firebreak and relatively short walk to car.SS06/07/2019
Came down from Larg Hill and starting up Lamachan Hill, met the two girls contouring Cambrick Hill, en-route to Larg H. I continued over Lamachan H to Bennanbrack, stopping for lunch there, and then contiuing to Nick of Curleywee and up to summit of C. Dropped of N over White Hill and veered NW to run into tough crags and v rough terrain - difficult - to reach SUW track back to P at Glen Trool. Cloudied over on approach to C but no rain and sun returned later. Going S off C to wall and path to White Laggan might be a better descent route. First visit was solo on 08/05/2015/jacobus18/06/2019
Beginning from Loch Trool I followed the forest track and the turned off and made my way up to the summit of Curleywee (674m). From there I dropped down to Bennan Hill and White Bennan Hill before then climbing back up to Bennanbrack and onto the highest point of the day at Lamachan (716m). I then dropped down to Mulldonanch and finished with a difficult descent through tussocks and felled forest to Loch Trool. Including a walk around the Loch at the end I clocked up about 15 miles on a dry sunny day.meltdiceburg22/04/2019
Third and last Donald of the day. Great hill. Headed south to the forest track to pick up the bike.Play2End11/09/2018

From Glen Trool car park via Lamachan Hill, Larg Hill, back to Lamachan Hill and on via Bennanbrack. Down via White Hill.Winterfloodian07/06/2018
Parking area at end of Loch Trool road (416804) & up Mulldonoch, Larg Hill, Lamachan Hill & Scars of Milldown. From Scars of Milldown, continued following faint path alongside metal fence posts down to col & then a steep climb up to summit cairn. Dropped down to White Hill & then a tussocky descent between crags to forest track & back to car. (S)gerrybowes06/06/2018
Largs Hill, Lamachan, Bennanbrack, Curleywee, white hillLongwojo06/06/2018
Parked at top of forestry track below Lamachan Hill (No forestry activities evident) thereby saving very long walk-in and back. Firstly up Larg Hill then path across Lamachan and ridge over to the fine summit of Curlywee. Some rough ground descending plus a deer fence to cross. Best keeping to the right of the main burn.AndrewFinnimore01/05/2018
Our last hill on a superb sunny clear day with magnificent wild views. Small cairn on obvious top.Returned via newly restored White Laggan Bothy and fast but tedious gravel forest track through much felled forest.Denise 24/03/2018
Last of the Cairngarroch - Curleywee horseshoe and a very fine hill to end on. Ascent of the WSW ridge of gleaming Black Siliceous Shale rock. Very fine views from the summit include the distant Ailsa Craig. Great midge free weather.RichardM24/03/2018

A really fine hill, though unbelievably rough ground to get to it.Gill03/07/2015
Last hill of Five today starting from Bargrennan on an alternative Southern Upland Way route to St.John's town of Dalry. Route was SUW branching off to cross the old brige over the Minnoch, Borgan Hill, Craignaw, Lamachan Hill, Scars of Milldown and then down and up the steep hillside to the cairn. Although it was steep, the bare rock made it easier to climb. From here I descended on a bearing to the White Laggan bothy and back onto the SUW as it was getting late and I had miles and miles still to walk. I got into St.Johns Town of Dalry at 10.40pm!!Dazingdale09/05/2015

Donald round of Minnigaff Hills, Larg Hill to Millfore SW Top.Eddie22/11/1997
Solo from car park at end of road at Loch Trool. Followed the Southern Upland Way as far as White Laggan, then bashed up the usual Galloway rough stuff to the summit of Curleywee. Followed the obvious line round to Lamachan Hill for a superb view over the central Galloway hills. Headed out & back to Larg Hill. Took a rough N bearing skirting the worst of the rougher ground & followed the Sheil Burn until reaching the old boundary fence. Followed that easily down to the forest track which led back to SUW & Loch Trool. A tough day out.NotReallyABagger01/06/1996

Larg hill, Lamachan and Curleywee from Glen Trool, solo, Sunny, calm, and clear.alexmaclennan05/11/1988
The most exciting hill on a Larg Hill, Lamachan Hill and Curleywee round. Returned to Caldons via White Hill and the S.U.W. of which my log says very soggy in places, I prefer the ridges'. Sorry S.U.W. devotees! Wet snow above 1500 ft and clear views.pwheeler02/05/1987
