5th hill of 11 today on an elongated loop from Girvan, climbing Shalloch Hill, Byne Hill, Mains Hill and Grey Hill, dropping down S then SE to the minor road following it to Lendal lodge, over the Water of Lendal and then on a track to Knockbain, climbing a gate to access the open hillside. Took quite a few pictures of wildflowers as the weather had improved greatly before continuing the climb up to the Trig point and rock. Great views! Onwards to Craig Hill.Dazingdale16/05/2017
