Logged Descriptions  (logged by 6 users)ByDate of Ascent
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
From SE, P£2, mapped forest roads until due S of summit. Just before road end, at NX 64896 71858, ascend keeping L of ridgeline keeping L of windthrow, near summit keep L beside old wall then short easy ascent R to summit, large spruce or tangle of small pines 40m S. S ridge itself is harder going, I came up that way. First of a sunny chilly day.RHW27/10/2018
2nd tump of 3, after Waterside Hill i walked along the road till i could take a forest track detouring to see the Secret Kite cages (Where the D&G contingent of Kites were reared in secret prior to yrelease). I veered off the track to climb onto the ridge that eventually becomes jungle-like. A mossy tangle of branches, bilberry hummocks and the occasional mature spruce. Several contenders for summit recorded then a wet descent to forest track heading for Cairn Edward hill...Dazingdale19/10/2018
Started from the Bennan view car park NX65262 72367. I couldn't understand why this hill had only one one previous log as it is so near the road and a tourist path. Now I do. It's just a pine tree struggle much of the way - whether they're young and closely planted or more mature and fallen in untidy piles. It's not worth the effort - especially in heavy rain. Getting down to the track for Cairn Edward was even worse.Martin R14/12/2013
