Walked this Hill from the west, parking just after the cattle grid on the minor road. Not much to say apart from walked up then walked back down again and never saw any Bull, Cows or Calves.

That's a lovely wee wander JC, that sign is quite funny, it's not as if cows/bulls are man eaters anyway :lol:

Planning to do this after a trek up Tinto at some point, so unable to comment on the state of the broken Trig...........just a thought though - after seeing the No entry sign too, could this have been the work of the farmer to try and discourage walkers even more?
