Beautiful sunny and warm weather finally. Up to bag both Lendrick Hills.

Parked behind Little Rig at entrance to forestry. A lot of work going on at present which limits parking to right hand side of forestry entrance.

Virtually all of north side of Innerdouny has been recently felled and as a result any of the more direct paths have disappeared or are inaccessible.

Only real access to is to follow forestry track right around to East of the hill and then follow easy path up to summit. Return same way. path in pretty good nock. Some mountain bikes have been up it, but looks like not used that much until recently.

Lendrick Hill straightforward. Follow forestry track up from car park and either take steep ascent through small break where you see the small cairn on right, or continue a further 250 metres to Post with yellow direction to right (easier incline). Both a bit muddy and need to be a bit careful on descent.

Linking Lendrick and Innerdouny together as a walk is a good outing - I've done that a few times although not for a while. And linking the two actual Lendrick Hills would be a proper day out, given that the other one is across near Brig o' Turk!

(Combining Innerdownie and Innerdouny Hill as a walk is also interesting.)
