Simple, lonely, but rewarding climb south side with Trig Point on summit & no path which makes it more exciting. Great views, no other tourists expected or encountered

Conical hill- climbed on light bog & heather, some rocky outcrops. No road or path, just head 'up' Some wind chill on top.
Respect the deer fences placed by landowner who maintains two shooting huts with turf roofs half way up.
