Parked in the south bound lay-by and took the footpath to the south of Raylees. Decent track all of the way up helped by the very dry conditions, good views.

Parked at double gate NY 903884 followed forestry track to the mast and turned N up well marked ROW through the plantation. It was so icy cold that sections of the forestry tracks around the mast that might have been quagmire were easily negotiated. The path once clear of where vehicles have churned it up was a delight, with the frost as thick as it was there was a air of 'Narnia' to the woods. Beyond Fellhouse Crags the forest has been felled, however the ROW remains mostly unimpaired by brash. The views N open up, The Cheviots were all crowned with snow and looked amazing. By the time we reached the TP there was not a cloud in the sky, the sun was starting to set and the views were stunning. I'm sure the 'quick route' up from the Alpaca farm is interesting, but I'd highly recommend this route if you fancy a decent stroll!

This trig has a chip on the SW surface corner exposing a leg end of the spider. Looking south from this trig a small section of the forest corner has been felled. Parked near Rayless. Earthworks to cross and uphill through an interesting layout of horse field or some other animal, each with their own wooden stable/shelter. Never saw any animals.

Parked at Raylees on verge at start of footpath to trig. Said path goes through an alpaca farm. On the return I met a lass who owned some of the alpacas and had an interesting discussion about them.

Parked at the quarry gates, went through the pedestrian gate and followed a track passed the old site office. Continued up to the right, above the quarry then through the forest track to the trig.

Came up from the A496 through the alpacca farm. Reasonable feint path all the way up. Came up to do the new challenge geocache that has been placed nearby.

Not the most inspiring but a nice walk across grey mare from the A696. Very slight damage around the top, guess after a few more winters it will change to slightly damaged. Vast views of the Northumberland countryside.
