As others, parked on the grass triangle at Machermore and walked the mile and a quarter east along a v good track before 70m of ascent north up a steepening but dry hillside. Fantastic panoramic views for a sub 200m hill, descended east to bag the unusually located Stranraer AS. It’s certainly possible to drive to the ‘Path’ sign leaving just a short walk up to the summit, there is a wide verge on the S side of the track to park; only two closed gates would have needed to be negotiated today.

From the grass triangle parking spot. Pleasant walk to the trig along track with wide views. From the pillar I got my first ever glimpse of the Ulster hills just peeping over The Rhins of Galloway.

Great views of the Mull. Would have been 10 were it not for the hideous ariel thing next to the trig.
