Much the same as RHW only he had dark we had fog. No views. Suprisingly rock field with numerous large boulders. Maybe the farmer decided it was more effort to move them than its worth. Last 100m back to car we opted for a gate opposite the house. Mrs Snooty not impressed we hadn't followed path to the letter.stig_nest15/04/2016
Parked to SE opposite a house with several noisy, aggressive sounding dogs and tried to follow the FPs. It is all grassy and easy enough to navigate.clivevilla13/01/2016
