Summit high point.
by Colin Murphy  13 Dec 2021
The highpoint of this hill is marked by a pile of rocks to the right of the track when approaching from north, although I actually measured a slightly higher spot on the bank of heather opposite, although that area is probably the man-made result of the construction of the track.
