|I took the same route as Fasgadh starting from Howwood train station which wasn't shown on my map.
Quite a nice little escarpment to the trig. An imposing hill The hill fort to the SE is also worth a detour||Thearlaichdubh||10/01/2017|
|Easy ascent of a pleasant hill through Skiff Wood. The ongoing yellow road on the maps from the sharp bend is now gated off. Go up the old tarred road to the edge of wood and then follow woodland paths to avoid the mud.||fasgadh||02/01/2017|
|Track then path to the trig through woods.||robertphillips||29/05/2015|
