2nd hill of 13 today, following the fenceline after Yarngallows Knowe then veering off to climb up the turbine track to the top; hardstanding tarmac covers the summit so nearest natural point on the edge. Continuation Wnw for Auchincally hill via the marked cairn..Dazingdale22/09/2019
5th and last of the day. Wind farm tracks have ruined this once wilderness. Future generations will look at these landscapes the same as we currently do when in old mining areas. Back to the car park at the water works. Solo.bolton05/05/2019
Round of Craigbranreoch, Cannock, Black Hill, Struther's Brae and Yarngallows Knowe. Easy through the industrial estate to turbine 3. Great views of reservoir through the turbine blades.Thearlaichdubh12/04/2019
Parked in front of large green prefab in Craigdarroch at 632064 (OK with farmer) - N. up road for 300m or so to start of wind farm track - Along track to remains of a small wooden hut at 625057 & then up over tussock, partly along ATV track, to the most southerly turbine No.1 - Followed track to summit which lies alongside Turbine No.3. Continued to Black Hill & Windy Standard. (S)gerrybowes23/01/2019
Loop of Glen Afton from water works (car park closed but plenty room) taking in Black Hill, Struther's Brae, Windy Standard, Alhang, Alwhat, Meikledodd Hill, Blacklorg Hill, Cannock Hill and Craigbraneoch Hill. Excellent walking though lots of new wind farm stuff (restricted currently as construction site).SS14/07/2018
An evening bonus summit after a circuit of the tops around Windy Standard. Drove from Afton CP to a pull in on the wind farm track leaving the Afton Water road a mile or so North. A haul up the hillside, past turbines and through patches of churned peat was recompensed by a deep red and gold sunset just as I reached the turbine top of Struther's Brae.Nick Down124/03/2018
