Ascent Trip Report

Late start (3.30pm) under heavy skies but it kept largely dry in the chill breeze. Start from Callaly at the public footpath just west of the village where there is space for one car on the highway verge. Followed the path to the Access Land and then along the fence to the stream where some ponies were grazing. More or less followed the stream up from there (leaving the public footpath) and made our way to the cairn at point 271m. From there Long Crag can be seen 2 kilometres away across a shallow valley. There is a path running south along the edge of some woodland which turns to the south west on reaching the steepening of Long Crag. A short 120m ascent takes you up on the flattish top of the hill and a walk past a cairn brings the trig point and summit. Return the same way.
