Parked at the end of a track at West Merkland, and took the fairly new track up to the edge of the pine forest (lower part of forest is old birch, not conifer plantation). Up the edge of the conifer forest, and on up to the summit. Snow falling, and very windy as we went up, but some views from the top.LizH26/02/2020
