outcrop in grass at summit. Protected on its south side by gorse but can be circumvented. We approached from Barlochan to the west of Barchain farm through sheep pasture with a few gorse patches.Denise 18/04/2022
Seven Tump round from parking at Barchain road end. The first hill was a mudfest, thanks to the resident cattle herd and ongoing wet weather. The area around a cattle feeder was simply a disgusting pond of slurry. Thankfully, they seem to avoid the little knobbly ridge.Colin Crawford14/02/2022
