Excellent hill.Adrian22/05/2022
4th tump of 8 today with Adrian and probably the best. Accessed from minor lane at Quinhill, a 2.5km out and back via good track then over wall to climb direct to the top with fortifications still looking in good nick. Wonderful spot at top watching the ferries sail by. Mating Hoverflies were providing some nice acoustic buzzing noises. Return route via old gate onto same track then on to Cruach na Luib...Dazingdale22/05/2022
