From West Lees where there is room (just) at the entrance to the forest road. The road is followed to a junction where the left fork is taken and then to a couple of finger posts that point the way, first along a grass path and then into open fields. The way is obvious. There are stunning views from the top. One can understand why the Romans had a fort up here.Clach Liath10/02/2019

Start of another holiday. From minor road near West Lees we followed forestry tracks / waymarked paths to summit trig. Rocky summit wild and windy today.

A superb hill in crystal clear weather following a morning of rain and mist. Followed the good track from West Lees to its end, and then a way-marked muddy footpath onto the hill.
