I parked the car in the forestry entrance as previously described. Following the forest road upwards I turned left once I reached the end of the field boundry on my left hand side. This leads to a communications mast. Turn right and then left after 200m up a single pedestrian track. This is looking at the true summit with cross from a secondary summit 100m to the southeast. The views are quite immense in all directions.

Crossing over the summit i 'battled' some heavy furze and general overgrowth to reach the trig pier on the downward northern slope.

Skirted around the left side of the lake and through a small gap in the forestry and back onto the proper forestry roads down to the car.
