A nice hill. Parked at the disused toilet block, over the bridge and steeply up dry, grassy/mossy sheep tracks through the heather to join a nastier quad bike track. This disappears off in the wrong direction at a mossy shelf, and it's a nice climb thereafter on grass/moss past a low rocky outcrop and onwards to a large cairn, then across a dip to the trig.Gill20/01/2019
