A bit of a slog but little climbing on so-so hill.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  24 Apr 2023
There is parking for 1 or 2 (at a squeeze) cars at C73829 08590 starA. The starting point for this hill is at 400m, so there's not a lot in the way of climbing, although it is necessary to drop down about 20m to the col. Cross a gate and walk SW towards the col across short heather and grass - it isn't too difficult at first. As you start to climb the terrain becomes a bit more rugged, with longer heather, uneven ground and some peat hag, along with a fence to be crossed. A long, though not particularly high rocky outcrop defines the summit area on its west side, though the highpoint is simply a mound of heather.
