Simple walk up tarmac road.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  12 Feb 2024
You can just about park one car at a gated entrance at N7192016807 starA. Cross gate and follow a tarmac road up a gentle slope for about 700m. The road is fenced in on either side. Around N71405 16809 starB you will see a gate into a grassy field. Cross this and climb the grassy slope to a trig pillar. There is also a telecoms mast nearby. (Do not enter the field if it will disturb livestock.) It is also possible to continue up the road to the telecom mast and cross the fence on the right where it is lower (and unfortnately there had been some fly tipping.)
