This hill is within walking distance from my mums house, but we've never been up there...now with my mum's dog and one of my three an "oldie" walking from there wasn't an option so we had to drive along and park at the car park so the oldies could come up too. The weather was terrible, no views and rain turned to sleet turning to snow at the summit...and this was repeated in reverse on the way down! There was an easy tarmacked road up to the top though and signposts for a circuit, on the WH description it says the old paths are overgrown but they looked fine from what we can see so maybe a circuit is possible again, we'll hopefully find out on a nicer day because today we decided to just head back down. So, no photos of the views, but plenty of the dogs enjoying themselves!

I think Fly is happy to bag herself a new summit!

Wee Brodie again, he just follows at heel most of the time now!
