Parked at Nether Handwick and walked back up to Ryehill. Tried to walk through Chamberwells but Farmer has mulitple barricades across the road blocking access. Then he starts mouthing off because I divert up the edge of field with sheep in it. Fool. Haven't decided whether to report him, he's blocking a public right of way and a tourist menace. He knows the law. Head straight up to summit then along ridge to Carlunie Hill. Came back the same way and then once past the spooky cows who were following me, head down towards the main road anytime past one of the farms and back to car.thejam12/04/2021

Looks as though it used to be a good hill before being gouged and bludgeoned by ugly tracks and turbines. 28 of 32.alda30/05/2015
