A revisit for this years log, parking just up from the Castle car park. Lane is in better condition than previous, past the fish lake and then good path to the trig summit. The 'new' top could be seen a few hundred metres away across a lower lying area of land. Sheep tracks followed up through short bilberry, grass and heather to the top. Again looking back the trig top appears higher, optical effect perhaps.nordicstar21/09/2016
