Great views from this relatively low-lying pillar including Cross Fell and The Cheviot. Approached along the bridleway past the old quarry.

Set off down minor road from Ryal to Moot Law farm hoping to find a parking space only to find about 15 other cars from the local Ramblers group already there. Trig easily found just off PROW

Bit of an epic, this one. Staying with a friend in Little Bavington, I set off on my bike at 0650 and was dismayed by how much height I lost going through Hallington and further South. That was quicly made up in ascending Ryal Hill which has apparently gained infamy on the cycling Tour of Britain! Anyway, once I'd scraped my lungs off the road, I cycled steadily up to the trig, which offers spectacular views, particularly this morning, of rainclouds sweeping in from the west. Undeterred, in Hawaiin shirt and shorts, I hopped on the bike to find I had a puncture, and had I bought a repair kit or spare tube? Of course not. In the rain, I freewheeled and trudged back to Ryal to meet my host who had interrupted breakfast preparations to rescue me, bless 'im.

Plug intact; two sighting holes open but unable to see the centre mark. Open views, especially to S. Intermittent brightness. Memorial stone set in ground to S.

Parked next to quarry and plantation. Walked along the tarmac road. Trig located on a small ridge above the buildings. Great views. Wind farms to the west.

Walked up from the quarry on glorious clear day which accentuated the fantastic views in all directions bar due east, which is obscured by a nearby plantation, however the views to the south and west more than compensate for this.

Quite pleasant walk from disused quarry entrance. Good views. Trig is not at hill high point which is a short distance to the SE (tumulus).

Parked in entrance gate to old quarry site which is now closed down. From here we walked the bridleway all the way to the trig point near Mootlaw Farm.

Parked at the end of the road and walked in on the farm track. Expansive views of surrounding countryside, lots of sheep and cows making this hard to sneak up on!

Cheeky deviation from the BW on roughish grazing.Wind farm and a lot of quarrying nearby, hopefully this summit will survive. (ON Ed Clements list)

Large new (in 1993) Gravel Pit not marked on maps confused the route to get to this one.
