As Clivevilla: Super little hill. Looked down on major floods all along the River SevernGordonAdshead17/03/2019
A quick drive-by from the road south of the hill to tick it off. Climbed a gate, crossed a field, over a hedge then up through gorse and bracken to the summit. Walked at dusk with Lindsey after a day on the Briedden Hills.Skip13/01/2019
A little trouble finding the paths that surrounds this Hill but eventually I found a probably private track from the South which was so beautiful, Full of bunnies and a gorgeous channel of Gorse with its powerful coconut aroma. Getting onto the peak involved Crossing some dodgy fences and I noticed cow pats everywhere which got me a bit nervous that there may be a herd somewhere in the field so I just walked over the summit and tried to find my way out of the field quickly. There were some very friendly horses nearby and the paths that head towards pritchards hill and the Admiral Rodney are truly beautiful and very picturesqueWalked around the whole Breidden range today, a long time goal. It was a wonderful day would (in sandals) so much variety including Rocky ascent, grassland, Forest, beautiful Gorse fields and the gorgeous country lanes. I would say that it is hard to construct a logical route around the three main peaks and there is a mixture in the area of clearly marked paths antumpawumpa19/04/2017
Up ridge through thickets of gorse from RoW at NE end, grassy summit grazed by cows. Obvious summitRichardM05/01/2017
Obvious summit in cow pasture ( no cairn) accessed from RoW to NE, picking way through flowering gorse. Lovely frosty sunny day.Denise 05/01/2017
After Middletown Hill, continued over Bulthy Hill and then down to NE. Followed dead-end road for a short time until a gate on the left led to a track through the gorse leading up the SW ridge of the hill. At the top I backtracked for a while and then headed N and into the field with the RoW in.Wheelsy26/08/2016
If you park on the verge just before the farm at the end of the no through road to the east, you can climb over a gate, go briefly up a pasture and find a path that goes directly to the summit. I only found it on the way down so had some fern bashing to do.clivevilla28/07/2016
Parked at the bwlch between Kempsters and Bulthy hills. Stroll down past lower bulthy and up onto hil. Many false summits. The last top of the Breidden griup and as such the view into Shropshire is majestic.A fine summit.stig_nest24/03/2016
Approached from the FP to the NE. An excellent small top on land that really deserves to be designated 'Open Access'.summitsup11/02/2014
From SE, park on verge, straight up, finding path thru gorse. Nice little summit but no view - early mistRHW28/09/2013
