Our Christmas Day walk.
The SMC description for this walk is totally out of date. We followed the western track for a couple of kilometres passing the two lines of deer fence on the left hand side of the track. About 100 metres after the last deer fence, there is a small cairn on the left hand side of the track. It’s next to a log bridge over the ditch and just before three large tree stumps on the right hand side of the track. From here there’s a narrow logging track uphill which ends at the deer fence by a stile. From here you simply follow the hillside to the top.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
