Fine, rocky summit with outstanding views.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  18 Apr 2022
There is parking for about 3 cars at C320 428 starA. There is also a similar parking space about 100m south. Cross the road and then a short section of heather before ascending along the ridge that runs to the NE. The terrain is a mixture of short heather and large rocky outcrops and is firm underfoot. A narrow trail runs most of the way up the hill. The ascent is a relatively easy gradient. After about 1km you will reach the first of two apparent 'summits', each marked by a substantial cairn, and separated by about 100m. The more southerly of these (the one you reach first) measures a couple of metres higher than the other, although at both points the other cairn looks taller. 40 minutes from car to cairn.
