Coastal Hill
by sandman  5 Jun 2017
Access to the open hillside is via the gravel track located at L8260430432 A which leads to turf cuttings and seemingly further afield which i did not explore. When you go thru the gate you can either opt to follow the track to the ridge or head straight to the summit over quite reasonable ground. A number of cairn markers have been constructed on the hill where i had no problem with access but i was joined on my walk up and down with a local dog who seemingly had a lot more knowledge of the locality than i did.
