Buckoo Bucks!

Followed route suggested by Jackill from the east side of Buckoogh and found the nuisance clearfell has worsened over the years since that comment. Would not recommend it at all now. An easier alternative route (which I used on the descent) would be to park at the gate at G015 002 A and follow the line of an old wall beside the forest up the hill.
