1st ever log for this hill!! 9th hill of ten today on an epic alternative Southern Upland Way route from Castle Kennedy to Bargrennan via Craig Fell,Cruise Black Fell,Gleniron Fell,Bught Fell, Larig Fell,Drumpail Fell,Balmurrie and Artfield Fell's then dropping down on a bearing to a forest ride leading NE to the Tarf Water. I followed this upstream for about 200m where there were small grassy islands and virtually the only place I Could get across. I threw my rucksack across and then jumped from three different turfy islands before following a burn tributary and forest ride NE emerging at a forest track complete with abandoned caravan The forest had been clear-felled so it was easier just climbing up to the cairned summit from here.Lovely wild aspect with Eldrig loch below to the North. I descended to the track but then struggled to pass the Gall Moss Moss of Dirneak falling over several times. I tried following sheep routes and that helped a bit. I was heading for a forest ride atDazingdale07/05/2015
