Hill Of Two Sides.
by sandman  21 Sep 2015
On one side we have a sheer rock face on the other heather and grass but when you do reach the summit at M1271599613 starA you are rewarded with some nice views.I parked at M1305198866 starB accessed the hill thru a farm gate crossing a double fence which is the shortest route to the ridge allowing an easier walk to the summit marker.
