Parked by the church, waited 2.5 hours for the rain to stop, then walked along the back road past the church and primary school to the phone box. Many nice gardens. Across the main road, past the row of cottages (more gardens) then followed the walkers signs up through the nice plantation on a good track. Met a family of weasels, a bundle of ginger fur. A faint ATV track after the gate, alongside the forestry wall, joining a better track to the top of the hill. Good views and a nice walk, worth waiting for the rain to stop.Gill10/07/2019

Pleasant afternoon walk when we'd solved parking problem. Kirk car park entrance was too narrow for camper, but following road past school there were widenings that offered good parking. We continued to the next road to right, cross main road and at end of cul-de-sac we followed Hill Path signs to obvious route.henryfm28/05/2016
