Private road then a track leads to Loch Humphry and then it's a slightly boggy section of path before climbing over the smaller top before the summit. The smaller top can be skirted round if prefered. Returned the same way.

This brings back the memories....was my first taste of being up a hill when i was 13. My uncle lived in Erskine and we used to walk over the bridge and up here and often went for a swim in the Loch. Shame I waited over 25 years to restart my hillwalking days.

Cheers.

Cheers guys. I was the same Dooterbang, did Arthurs seat when about 10 then nearly 40 when started Munro bagging, probably like many others on the site. If only we knew back then how good it would be. :D
