Parking for a single vehicle at the start of the footpath running NE off the minor road (alt 237m). Follow this waymarked path until it reaches the edge of the linear wood. Keep to the western side of this wood until it finishes. Cross an easy wall into a field from where you can see a gate giving access to the summit field. On return you can cut directly across the field from the wood to the starting point 2.2 km return. 30 minutes. 105m ascent.moorsman09/03/2018

10/10 from entry to drive to Air Cottage. A quick covert nip over a couple of walls and an electric fence. Passing small quarry below summit. Grabbed a couple of pics and left by same route.stig_nest26/05/2017
Parking: SK 13474 50878 Ilam Village. Similar to Mark Sims, only accessed fields at SK 13474 50878. Just about dawn as I reached the summit.David Evans26/03/2017
Parked in Ilam village and walked steeply up road north and took footpath to right after wood-by following direction of sign I ended up going straight to summit over one wall and one gate.Mark Sims02/01/2017
As Aye Jimmy. Watched the sunrise at 08.00.Campbell Singer30/11/2016
From W starting as ngthack up lane to Hill Top Farm, but after gate for lower profile turned sharp right, followed wall along until gateway appeared in higher wall, then up pasture.Aye Jimmy17/03/2016
Harder work than a hill 3 times it's size, due to hot weather, inadequate public transport, 'difficult' access, and Spanish tourists following me whilst bush whacking! Glad it's over. Air Cottage was nice though.DanHolme02/08/2015
Dash from the west between showers -track and field. In view of Hill Top House so did not hang around,unlike the two successive adrenlin filled sundays many years ago which I spent hanging around literally off old bolts and pegs trying to aid climb across the spectacular roof of Dove Holes Cave down below in Dovedale (got half way).Chris Pearson26/07/2015
From west. Up track to house, at first bend straight ahead through gate and head towards lone tree on skyline. Summit tumulus just beyond, next to quarry.ngthack26/11/2014
Gate up line of drive to farmGordonAdshead09/08/2014
Accessed off Ilam moor lane at SJ133525,climbed over gate, walked up to top of field veered left to find more suitable gate and turned right and then climbed over wall (where top half had been damaged) and walked all the way up to the summit. Highest point seems to be on mound next to quarry. Not the best views although you can just make out Thorpe cloud whereas the ridgeline of Bunster Hill is more impressive from this point being the same height theoretically. Return same route.Dazingdale24/11/2013
340M, 3m, knoll by small grassed ex quarry at summit. from SW, summit itself overlooked by house & farmRHW18/03/2012
Accidentally did this as a kid, my folks missed the path to Air Cottage so I remember we cut over muddy fields taking in the summit to get out bearings.Jake99431/08/2003
