Mattbheinn2901 easy hillside lol It is only a short distance however and maybe my fitness levels had a lot to do with how tough I found it. Parked at end of track on the opposite side of the road, you then need to climb up the bank and over the fence and head for the trigpoint. Pathless ground but doable. Great views from the trigpoint.

The third long slog up to a top in the mist and wind of the day. Thought I'd got lucky when it started raining horizonally just as I reached the top. Remained perfectly dry sheltered behind the pillar but got caught again on the decent. I couldn't have been wetter if I'd capsized in the kayak!

Side facing prevailing wind is slightly eroded. The day was hazy so view was not as good as it could have been!
