Ascent Trip ReportWe parked our car on the roadside at 54.08675, -9.570527. It is probably more logical to leave the car before the barrier, a few hundred metres away. But the sign says "no unauthorised access beyond this point". Approximately 5 km of very gradual unpaved road. Then a hard-to-see trail on the grassy slopes, micro-navigating between grassy hills to avoid mud and unnecessary descent. I think there are many possible options to climb the plateau. We chose to go L before the end of the valley. The summit plateau was in the clouds, so navigation was useful. HP is a bump made of stones with a concrete trig pillar at the top. A very similar descent route a lovely, longish walk.
2h35 up, 2h25 down, 5h00 roundtrip.
