|From parking area at start of Doon Hill walk to track end SE of summit. The final hundred yards is fiercely defended by close packed firs. Reached anthill cairn on all fours. Forest tracks to S of Kirkton hill, passing a forlorn set of picnic tables and some squashed metal pipes. Through a bluebell glade to the summit. Just beyond two mossy rock ribs, a large boulder beneath a pine seems highest. I used the head above summer rule to avoid damaging the small tree growing on it. The direct route back E involves confronting an awkward drainage ditch and another belt of close growing trees, so it is probably better to return on forest tracks.||Nick Down1||08/05/2020|
