Parked at the RSPB car park, up the little path onto the top of the sand dunes and along to the highest point. Continued on through the dunes and to Ben Feall.LizH23/08/2019
Start of a circuit to Calgary Point on the fatbike. Visited both tops, giving a good ridgewalk with some exposure where there is a big blowout . This hill is a changing feature but well vegetated in most places, could only take one storm though.fasgadh02/08/2019

Parked up in the RSPB car park and walked over the dunesCap_Thunderbolt21/07/2018
Straight up on to the dune by the obvious path at the back of the RSPB car park, then left to the summit. Northwards along the ridge to the second top (just in case the wind alters the shape of the dune again!). Back down and along the track towards Ben Feall. Sunny but quite windy: being sandblasted on a summit ridge was a new experience!mainnirnamfiadh08/10/2015
