Continued N. across reeds and long grass to Saugh Hill, the twin summit. (PM) Sadly, it lost its status as a Marilyn one week later.gerrybowes17/07/2014
This hill is very straight forward in the beginning, you can park on the road just before where the track starts, just head up the track until it runs out, I decided to go down left into the little gorge (electrical fence was off, but be careful) and than back up again to avoid the muddy area ahead, that was good going, short grass, easy elevation. round trip took 2.15 mintallblond31/05/2014
Continuation of walk from Laggan Hill. Retraced route to track, then dropped down for boggy crossing of Laggan glen, then up through bracken and pasture to summit - not a recommended route.marktrengove30/05/2014
