H B Kennedy: I don't think that you will be able to receive directly from Darvel, or any other full service transmitter for that matter.
The primary reason for this would appear to be that you are at the foot of Broom Hill which is around 100m high.
Taking The Hollybush Inn as the base location; whilst it does not have line-of-sight to Darvel, what with Whitehill being in the way, the drop isn't as near as is great at your location.
The only way you will be able to receive more channels is via satellite. As you already have a dish, you will just need a receiver, for example a Freesat one.

Note that ITV3 IS on Freesat, contrary to the presence of its logo on that page, denoting that it isn't.
