Found parking after a couple of drive past's; was obvious once you checked the map print out. Probably too early in morning for me OR just being a typical man!!

It was a good walk in nice spring conditions.
Route described on website was spot on and easy to follow. The climb was steep in places and foggy at top so thetrue summit was not obvious - GPS got us there. Fog made it bleak but descent was good and sun was out – very pleasant walk back. Ddin't rush the descent and enjoyed the views on way down.

Well worth a go, as an early walk, or a starter one as it wasn't too long but some nice challenging climbing at parts.
