|Two car linear walk with mae, Loch Tima to Jamestown. 13 hills, 9.5 hours. Very heavy going on ungrazed vegetation. No tree problems encountered (except where we diverted from route to utilise forest roads).||jimbloomer||27/09/2017|
|drove up foresry road to within 300m west of top, then up through trees.||robertphillips||11/12/2016|
|Drove south up to hairpin bend on forestry tack adjacent to extensive felling. Confronted by logging manager who was very friendly but explained that, whilst we were welcome to walk, we should have left the car at the road as it is private woodland. We apologised and he then gave us directions to the summit. All very civilised. Decent bloke. Up burn (Wester Cleuch) towards Middle Hill to crest of hill and then north east along wide mossy break to summit||Campbell Singer||25/11/2015|
