Parked south of cattle grid.Bogs and groughs early on make for hard going but then a combination of a vehicle track and path next to fence make progress easier.catman25/01/2020

Bench mark on boundary stone at parking spot. If you are into that sort of thing. Apart from having three names & a trig, the hill doesn't have lot to recommend it.ngthack05/01/2019

KJF Stroll along S side of newish boundary fence from road summit to East to minimise disruption to ground nesting birds (saw one family of grouse). Plenty of damp groughs to cross but the dry conditions made it relatively easy and detours didn't need to be huge. Summit pretty bleak (apart from fence) with gulls on nearby tarn and a view of Semerwater S.crazy01/06/2017
