A Graham peak which represents the southernmost point of East Ayrshire Council Area, Mullwharchar lies 3 miles (4 km) west of Corserine and rises to a height of 692m (2270 feet). It lies within a section of East Ayrshire that descends into Dumfries and Galloway, the boundaries of which run around the base of this hill. Mullwharchar is the highest point on a ridge which extends from Hoodens Hill to the north to Snibe Hill in the south. This entire ridge is composed of granite, part of the extensive Loch Doon Igneous Complex, injected into the Silurian sedimentary rocks of this part of Scotland around 400 million years ago.
