From Largs Moor Road (A760) to Greenside Hill

 

 

BELOW: Parked beside the A760 Kilbirnie to Largs road. Walking the 200 yards from here to the start of the track up the hill necessitated jumping into the hedge several times to avoid being wiped out by fast moving traffic [Gary].

BELOW (next 2 photos) : The track up the hill, although not as hair-raising as walking along the A760, this stretch held its own danger in the shape of a herd of very frisky brown cows who decided to chase after me.

BELOW: Out of the cow field and the weather is improving. A line from the little bridge passing to the left of the hillock took me to the crash site.

BELOW: The crash site is near the left of the hill in the distance (centre of photo).

 

The area between here and the crash site was very boggy and tussocky. The tussocks were so large in places it was possible to walk between them.

BELOW (next 2 photos) : A very lucky unlucky sheep. Unlucky to find itself stuck on its back in the middle of a bog on top of a remote unfrequented hill, but very lucky that someone just happened to be passing to help it up onto its feet.

BELOW: On top of Greenside Hill. The area immediately in front is where the grid ref I had put the crash site. In fact it was off-photo to the right.

BELOW: Searching the area of the grid ref I had, the crash site was further to the north west. Knockside Hill where a Beaufort crashed can be seen on the horizon to the left and Irish Law where the Viking crashed lies to the right.
