Hilltop 2 on Kilbride range loop
by markod  30 Dec 2014
As part of the looped walk (Kilbride military range) this was the second top, the walk across benefitted from the hard frosts of the previous nights.. This could be quite boggy in places(descending from Seefin) although on the accent to the top it's not too bad. Another fine cairn of circa 5000 years ago....
