Alternately easy and rough.

Parked at R94525 53427 starA where wind farm tracks intersect the road - just room for one car without blocking access to the wide double gates. Crossed gate and proceeded 750m up track to R94565 52881 starB, turned left for 50m and then right, through an unlocked gate leading to a towering mast. A wooden fence on the left curls up towards the summit, so followed this. Ground rough in parts but passable with help of fence. R 944 527 starE crossed fence and headed directly up towards summit area. The terrain here was rough - uneven ground, sedge grass, heather and dreaded briars, not to mention a few fallen trees. The summit area features a wind turbine in a clearing, but the actual high point is to the left, where you'll see a small rise topped by a trig pillar and distinctive small tree. 90 car to car.
