nice top - circular walk from the bwlchgigglejon04/08/2010
The nearest hill on any list near my caravan. We decided not to do the easy route up between the lakes and instead walked cross country. The paths were practical non-existant in places and newly built fence lines meant that i had some compass practice.Cap_Thunderbolt01/08/2010
Took the tour of nature reserve first before climbing this good hill in warm hazy sunshine.Dugswell224/04/2010

An unexpected little gem. Pleasant approach between 2 lakes and a rocky little ridge up to a 360 degree view. 3 lots of windfarms visible but didn't really spoil the view - they seem made for this sort of terrain.signyred13/11/2007
