There is space to park accross from the farmyard where the road turns into a farm track. Proceed uphill on foot and take the gate and track straight in front of you where the main track swings to the left. The track you are on moves through an open field and then through some forestry, finally opening out at the summit trig pillar which is accomponied by a cross. This low summit affords some fantastic views. There also is a reasonably well preserved fort on the close summit to west of the main summit which Ive visited on a previous visit.
