Over churned up cattle pasture from road to E. Levelish grass summit, high point unmarked. Superb coastal views in warm evening light.RichardM02/07/2021
Parked in the stones car park. Wandered across whilst Mrs G inspected the stones. Apparently they're 5,000 years old, didn't like to tell them they're a lot older than that! Several stock fences to cross and the grassy mound top was no reward.jonglew19/05/2017
