A megalithic tomb is the highlight of this short walk. Start at the south of the hill at a little car park with room for 4 or 5 cars. A dilapidated wooden sign saying 'megalithic tomb' and a stile in the stone wall give way onto a good way marked track. Head on up to the tomb first (signposted) which is a great example of such construction. Head back slightly to take the track up to the summit which is a large overgrown cairn. You can continue east from the summit and follow the way marked track back down to a forest track. Turn right to follow the track to meet up with the way you came up earlier. 40 minutes return at a leisurely pace.
