Great views
Short Summary created by peter1  23 Jun 2014
A lovely little hill. I parked at the farm at N52.5303, W8.3537 and asked permission to cross the farm land. Continue up the track, through 2 gates. Take the left track which soon swings around to the right. Simply follow the track uphill then. 10 minutes from the car. The views are really good in all directions.
