We have been on this hill already in July 2020. But as we came onto the summit fog engulfed us suddenly and we couldn't see anything:

The forecast for today was promising sunny weather, almost no wind, so we decided to do it again.
The whole path leads along a good surface, just in some places it was covered with ice.

Usually it is possible to park at the gate but today there were so many cars (Hill Bagger's nightmare :roll: ) that we parked the car by side of Braidbog farm not far away of the gate:
