Parking update
by Wildrover  20 Oct 2020
Starting at W33989 50434 B there is parking available for a number of vehicles to park by the road to the right side of the entrance as you face uphill.The gate has a beware of the bull sign on it and as track is on a farm and used by livestock care is advised Follow the track to the top which has a collection of masts, a holy year cross and trig pillar on its elevated perch.Cant comment on the view or otherwise as visibility was very poor for my visit to the top.
