Park in N bound layby on A77 opposite entrance to Caravan Park/Farm shop. Up vegetable field, then very muddy coo field. Summit near a water trough.Thearlaichdubh29/12/2022
After Fell Hill; parked in layby opposite entrance to Dowhill. Along verge, through open gate. and up edge of recently harvested field. Over gate, up left hand field edge, to avoid skittish Bullocks, and across wooden fence at corner, then pasture to summit. With the F.C.The Captain24/06/2021
After Top of the Fell, a nice drive to park in a layby south of Turnberry. I could have parked in a nearer one but it was only 5 minutes extra walk. Used gate then beside edge of field, over to another gate giving acess to a large field then up to the top, with indeterminate high point. I checked both sides of fence. Return route as outward then on to Failford for the River Ayr gorge walk....South Ayrshire re-completed.Dazingdale16/05/2021
Same as others, very easy, though a long drive for one errant tump. Re-completion of South AyrshireColin Crawford19/04/2021
