Picture: Rocks at summit
Rocky summit
by Fergalh  1 Nov 2020
Parked at layby bend on road to west and followed bracken overgrown track to top which is marked by a random pile of rocks. This track starts of as a right of way and than the rough track starts to summit but where the right of way finishes and rough track starts is a moot point. The name of summit in English is Lake bank...No sign of a lake here ! Linkback:
