Lovely walk along path despite the turbines, with good sea views and the sound of skylarks or curlews almost all the way. Lots of sheep and cows.alda23/06/2024
Bransly Hill and Wester Dod from the minor road. Short grass up Bransly Hill the whole way, wind farm track leads almost to the summit of Wester Dod.Tisteln10/01/2024

A repeat visit on the way to Watch Law.Minto21/02/2022
From parking to the East, over saturated terrain to top. Also visited the nearby trig.NormanW21/02/2022
Excellent parking off road to SW of cattle grid to E of hill. Follow the fence. Made circuit of the trees to take in the trig point. Ground at the fence corner NE of trig is at least 1m higher than trig and so could be in contention as the summit.Minto16/01/2022
Same route as most of the 'baggers' high point in the road. Then onto Watch Law. Lot of work going on to the SW. More wind turbine and large buildings which I would guess will be a electric sub station.Andrew Simmons15/12/2020
