Walk from home, just along hedge and over a couple of fairways. Trig is right by a green: decent view and no bother/interest from the golfers.Grinner28/06/2020
Parked on Dalmary Drive and in through the gates to the Club House. (The gates also give access to Barshaw Park.) Followed the edge of the course towards the trig point, quickly across one fairway, then round the edge and finally across between two greens to the summit. Some golfers around, but they may be used to people going to the trig point.LizH17/06/2020
