Like all the other reports for this walk i started from the parking area off the minor road just after leaving the A957, signposted, Durris. I maybe should have done the walk from the south, where another track leads through the forest to the summit, giving a report for a different route. The route i took was follow the track, taking two right turns which lead to the summit.
