Through a windfarm
Short Summary created by jackill  30 Aug 2010
Park at the access road entrance at R22980 12235 A room here for 5-6 cars .Go through the gate and uphill past the windfarm office and then around to the summit. The summit is a raised area of bog very near the most southerly windmill. I did not have any access problems but If you don't want to walk past the windfarm office then you will notice a slightly overgrown forest road just across the river from the access road entrance which will bring you out onto the windfarm road very near the summit.
