From parking area (NX 6622 9941). Up road for 350m, then followed fenceline up to Ewe Hill -> North Top -> Alhang -> Alwhat. Then across Brown Hill to drop down to pick up a good unmapped farm road at NS 6591 0203 to Lorg, contoured round at ~320m crossing Water of Ken at NS 6753 0103, then steeply up at an angle to here.
