|As other from Upper Broomhill, round the back of the farm, then along the tree avenue uphill. Over the crossing point on the electric fence, then heather via the huge cairn to trig. Fine evening views before dark||N.Morters||26/01/2018|
|First hill of 2018, and a nice one. Parked on the verge at the Upper Broomhill/Upper Dagie junction, and followed the track up through the first gate, then took a nice grassy ATV track straight up the hill. This leads to an easy step over the electric fence, with all strands covered in insulation to prevent contact with tender anatomy. Heather bash to the big cairn (views!) and then to the trig. There are ATV tracks down the wall to join the main track to make a circular route, but I wish I hadn't, it was all very icy and a right pain.||Gill||01/01/2018|
