Took the Walkhighlands route and added on Carlins Cairn which took an extra 40 mins. Track from the car park then a path up the Falk Burn before coming out of the trees. The route is waymarked to this point for hillwalkers and also mentions a stile over the deer fence but i didn't see one so climbed the fence before making my way over to Corserines north east ridge and a path to the summit. 20mins over to Carlins Cairn and 20 mins back to Corserine and followed the ridge to Milldown & Meikle Millyea. I stopped at Millfire for lunch as there was 2 "seats" at the summit. From Meikle Millyea i went down the north east ridge to pick up the track back to the start.
