Unremarkable summit covered in windmills
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  23 Sep 2022
Parking for 2 cars next to entrance to Gruig Windfarm at D13282 21721 starA. The wind farm entrance features a high gate and fencing. There is a farm gate adjacent to the parking spot. By crossing this into a field and turning west, it is possible to access the wind farm road, although if there is anyone about, you should ask permission. Follow the road west up to a fork and take the road to the right. Follow this up to its highest point, roughly D12037 21432 starB, then turn NW, directly up the hillside for 500m through long grass and heather, which makes it a bit of a slog. The summit is rounded and flattish and features windmills, although there is a small stone marker at what appears to be the high point. 1 hour 20 minutes should see you up and down.
