A very short hill walk but surprisingly steep once on Knock Hill.The views were fantastic and for such a short walk well worth a visit.

Love to see family groups out in the hills.Delightful family photo's.Knockhill a new one on me and couldn't locate Craigmartin on road atlas but views look really far-reaching.I note you're from Cleethorpes;I paid my first visit there ,since about 1954, at beginning of July with a sister and her 3 and a half year old granddaughter.It was a beautiful day but the beach was virtually deserted.Sand castles,donkey ride,train ride,football,paddling in sandbank pools and Cornetto;the little'un loved it and so did her old relatives.

Nice report Paulo. I agree, brilliant to see the family having such a great time in the hills. We moved to the borders last year from Grimsby, and Antonia and I have just started bagging some Munros. We'll have to check this little one out on our travels.

Thank you for your comments Cleethorpes is a lovely seaside town it has lots to offer.The only downside is how far I have to travel to reach hills or mountains.
It makes me appreciate those areas more when I'm there.
