1st of 7 hills from Kilnaughton bay, over wall and then up beside the woodland edge and then ascent up through trees from SE to emerge from woodland to knoll and crumbling Trig pillar. Descent South to road and then a long trek to Cnoc Mor Ghrasdail...Dazingdale12/05/2024
Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log: 1st of the 8 I have left on Islay! Parked at NR3414846464, just North of the new houses in a lay-by. Back down the road and through a gate taking the large track which headed towards the old quarry, skirted round the dip and boggy bit and headed up to the fence line which I crossed at NR 34492 46461, then headed up through the trees to the trig, where I met several deer. Back via a firebreak to fence and then to car via same route as ascent.thejackrustles13/05/2023
From tight parking space S of driveway to An Curran house. Up between house and wood, first right up ride,then through trees to ride on steep slope. Follow west to steep sided clearing and TrigMinto04/04/2022
From NE. Seems like there’s a path from the west that must be easier than my tree bashing route.Adrian04/04/2022
Reasonably easy from road to west.chrisbien03/04/2022
Found start of path and used bits of it on the way up but there were also a few tree thrashes when I lost itColin Crawford03/04/2022
Found the track into the forest - now between new housing not on my map. Lost the footpath a couple of times but rescued by GPS before I went too awry.summitter12/05/2021
Good path through conifer forest from NR 34392 46194, room for 1 car to park here. Small treeless summit protruding above surrounding tree tops giving suprisingly good views. Badly damaged trig pillar.jonglew10/06/2014
Difficult to get to this trigpoint so had a guide in form of local farmer who had tied ribbons to trees to show the way. Trigpoint is damaged.Skerryvore26/02/2011
