Good, unmapped farm track starts NX 5620 5540, parking in wide entrance. It tracks round to NX 5535 5551, from when I turned left, hopped a wall and headed up. On to Ben John.jonglew10/02/2021

The Whiteside track through forest and onto an ATV track to a large stone wall. A good track runs along the south side of the wall to between Mill Knock and Ben John. Bagged both via a series of animal and ATV tracks, before heading to Cairnharrow, again along a series and animal and ATV tracks. Pretty good ATV track heads back to north of Whiteside.summitter11/07/2020

Hard surfaced farm track not on map starts at roughly NX 560 555 and leads up and around the bottom of Mill Knock to about NX 552 554 leaving easy ascent to summit.Continued around ridge to Cairnharrow on sheep and quad bike tracks.ARM17/09/2017
Continuation of walk from Ben John. Walked down east to a wide bealach, and then followed wall up to unmarked summit - crossing wall to reach. To descend, followed wall WNW to a gate, then followed track down to a ruin, through wood and back to lane (tricky locked gate to climb). Then south on lane back to the car.
