With time left over from Dumyat we headed round to add Steele's Knowe to the day. Decent sized area to park in at the entrance to Green Knowes Windfarm and then it is a case of following the very wide road up to and through the windfarm heading to turbine 6 and from there heading up across slightly boggy grassland to reach the summit just a short distance further on. Much quieter walk, we only saw a cyclist!
