Access Issue
by Frank12345  6 Feb 2012
Just south of the summit there are two bright red warning signs 'No unauthorised access beyond this point'. They are attached to the boundary fence that runs along the ridge,and they are confusingly situated near the boundary to dissuade any walking,although technically they only refer to a short strect of commonage that runs down to the glenteige,east side of the ridge.
