I parked the car in the wide car park area (it's overlooked by cameras to keep the cars safe). Following the road upwards I turned right to pass through the sight with the standing stones. Moving through the site I went upwards through the fence and crossed the field into forestry to find the Trig at the far side.
Looking at the aerial photos I think if you continued on the forest road to the end would it be easier??
