From all the attention I got from the cows you would think they'd never seen a trig bagger before.

Log #322. Straightforward walk through farmyard and along drivable track to the mast compound. Through rusty (and sharp) gate to pillar. Slightly damaged, but nothing else to note. Great views on a warm, clear afternoon, only spoilt by Hunterston B. Ailsa Craig, Arran, Wee Cumbrae all easily visable. Castle at Portincross is worth a visit too, if you like that sort of thing.

Slightly dinged pillar around the top edges standing atop Goldenberry Hill. Glorious clear day with big views across to snow-topped Arran and as far as the Arrochar Alps. FB faces south-ish, all sightholes open except east-ish, cap missing and no plug. Walked up from Ardneil Farm.

The trig is over shadowed by the phone mast. Parked at Portencross then along the beach path and up the steep bank. Came back down the far side at Hunterston Power Station

Easy walk up from Ardneil Farm. Excellent views even on a cloudy / hazy day. These small hills are always worth the effort.

Cap open with only East sight closed, nibbled below flush bracket on South side and shares the hilltop with a neat cairn. Rewarding view after the steady saunter uphill with a strange wee duck below electric fence and through rusty gate to reach the pillar. Passed a curious windy, flappy object halfway up - a new-age scarecrow?

Slightly damaged pillar with intact spider but missing cap. No plug. All sightholes open except east. FB faces south. Phenomenally good views from the top, only slightly marred by the mobile phone mast nearby. Lovely vistas to Arran and the Cumbraes. Clear visibility to the Knock, Barbay Hill and Goatfell pillars. Easy walk up from Ardneil Farm up the metalled track. The final field was coo free.

I came up from the field north of the small pier north of Portencross. This involved a messy scramble through undergrowth from around NS177494 to reach the clifftop. Then nice green cow pastures to the summit. (Fortunately the cows were occupied at lower altitudes.) Fantastic views as the sun finally broke through in the last hour of the day: Hunterston B (A is hidden from view); Little Cumbrae; Arran; down the coast to Ardrossan and beyond; even the windfarm on North Hill looked good in the late afternoon sunshine. I descended northeast and then followed the lanes round to NS194511 before turning north along the bicycle path past Hunterston Castle towards Fairlie, a very pleasant route down.

Tried Deputydawg*s approach, encountered an electric fence hidden in tall bracken on a steep slope. Took easier option and took track up through Arneil farm. Met farmer who was very helpful, told me locations of electric fences and how to deal with his *wild* cattle--always keep close to a fence and jump over it if they come near!

Cap gone. Accessed a bit uncomfortably from east, would recommend approach suggested below.

Panoramic views around the Lower Clyde estuary, Arran, Ayrshire etc. Various methods of approach, but you can park at Portencross Castle, walk back along the road(E.) until you pass the last cottage on the left (N.side) and enter the field, following the fence line upwards(1.6mls)
