From the Faraclett car park, over the stiles to the phone mast, then down to the official path and gate, then up the hill. More direct going straight from the mast to the field gate. Good views of Keirfea Hill.Gill23/02/2019
From parking area at Faraclett. Planned to do the cirular walk but just did an out and back. Best thing about this is the views to Kierfea Hill.jonglew23/02/2019
