|From parking near The Bu, up track to gate then along fence, through gateway to HP, had to make a hasty retreat from enjoying the view, to the other side of fence as the cattle had spotted me and decided they would run to see me.||PeterD||01/07/2019|
|Driven past the Bu, turning left at the track T junction, parked in a muddy area at the end of the track. Easy walk up soggy fields and back down a grassy track.||Gill||21/02/2019|
