First stop from Ferry, drove past house, walk along track then through two gates to HP just east of reservoir. Puffins at Castle o Burrian nearby well worth a look.PeterD26/06/2019
Driven up the track then walk across the field to the top. Needs Jon Glew's 4WD, and it's necessary to reverse down the track when finished.Gill26/02/2019
