Bee careful!

I followed jackill's instructions, but impatient to get up to the summit, I ignored the bit about meeting a grassy ramp and headed straight for the summit after his third point. Unless you're trying to get back into shape for a ski holiday, this probably isn't what you want to do, as you'll spend the next 20 minutes lifting the legs high over heather and ferns.

The mist was down, so no views from the summit for me: just the trig pillar and what appear to be the remains of a set of level crossing gates. Here instead is a picture of a group of bee hives, which are located just off the track near the parking spot noted by jackill. Might be a good idea to keep kids and dogs away from this spot -- you'll know it by the old radiator visible as a bridge across the drainage ditch on the track!
