Started and ended the walk from Pett which is a working farm beside which there is a limited amount of space to park without causing any inteference with farm activity/access. The route up is mainly bulldozed access road well "signposted" with markers making it very straight forward. Pressendye remains invisible until the 450m contour as you turn north with Pittenderich on the right.

A beautiful sunny day but nippy on the top however the cairn does offer shelter from southerly winds if you need a wee spot for lunch.

Good report - it looks an excellent little hill for a winter stroll - really extensive views by the look of it.

During these shorter winter days it's a pleasant day out to keep the body active ready for more challenging stuff come the summer. If anyone is new to the hills, it is navigationaly very safe and the views are definitely worth the effort.

Being pensioners, we do have the added advantage of being able to pick "good weather" days :D
