Log #477. Parked at visitor centre, then followed route suggested by member of staff: straight up alongside fence to bealach between East Hill and Hillside Hill, then over the style to Dunrod Hill. Picked up the track to the north, then back to the visitor centre via the masts by Scroggy Back. [ExP-319/MiP-38/Rev-6/BM-39/IS-50/Other-25]

1st of 2. Nice easy walk from Cornalees Bridge carpark. Good views over towards Greenock and across the mouth of the Clyde. A wee bit soft at parts but nothing major :-)

Quick dash up to this one from the Cornalees Bridge Visitor Centre, grabbing to the adjacent geocache on the way. Nice views on a cold winters day.

Visit this one on a clear day. The views up the Firth of Clyde and north are just jaw-dropping. FB faces north-ish, west-ish sighthole open only (which was stuffed with some plastic today). Cap missing with asphalt plug present. A chunk has been knocked out the SW edge around knee height. Good intervisibility to Corlick Hill, Banks, Blood Moss amongst others. The Knock also visible in beautiful silhouette. Came up from Cornalees Visitor Centre car park directly up the path between this summit and one next door with the cairn on it. The visitor centre has a great exhibition on the Greenock Cut on at the moment which is worth a visit in itself. Even saw a submarine gliding up the firth.....

Cap filled, spider vandalised, West sight still open.. but SouthWest chunk kicked out. A truly Classic Clydeview. I thought nearby Banks was boggy - but this little fellows shoulders have spagnum marsh like no other! Sheesh! The Cairn, 431metres to the East is higher :)

Passed by with a slight detour in an orienteering race. The seconds spent visiting the pillar were costly, but having slogged up there I was not for wasting a tick. Concrete plug replacement

Visited after doing the Greenock cut walk. A short steep wee climb up from Cornalees visitor centre. Breathtaking views of the sea stretching out to Arran and also of the mouth of Loch Long across the Firth Of Clyde with the Arrochar Alps and Cowal hills towering over the skyline. A lovely spot on a sunny day.
