Bardennoch Hill & Gairy Craig from layby S of Bardennoch. Bardennoch Hill fine, but trying to get a route to Gairy was tough. Tried to get to Braidenoch to use the track, but a huge area is fenced off by a barbed & electric deer fence?! When finally reaching the forest track there's a reasonable ride to the summit of Gairy.Tisteln14/03/2024
From roadside layby (NX 5796 9145). Deer gate locked so up and over. Took a good quality, largely unmapped, dirt road to NX 5726 9153, then followed fenceline up, and over another deer fence, before peeling off WNW for the top. On to Gairy Craig.jonglew24/04/2021

Circular route from Carsphairn. Knockower, Black Craig, Coran of Portmark, Bow (+middle and SW tops), Meaul, Carlin's Cairn, return via Cairnsgarroch, descent E and a nasty entry to forestry to reach forest road, exit to climb Bardennoch Hill and path back to Carsphairn. Fine weather but lots of flies.RobertP09/08/2020
1st of a 9 tump 17 mile route from Carspairn to St Johns town of Dalry. Bus dropped me off near the War Memorial then the Packhorse route veering off for the top. Descent through the grasslands heading for Gairy Craig...Dazingdale18/10/2018
The footpath from Carnavel is hardly visible on the ground but the kissing gates give hints as to its line. Generally not difficult going to the trig. The collapsed chambered cairn is worth a diversion on the returnColin Crawford31/08/2018
