Please be aware that even on a busy Sunday if you park out with bays you will be fined. The Council know the car parks are too small and regularly visit to maximise revenue from fines!

Nice walk that was 3 hours up to the top and then back down. Very good sign posting from the car park. The initial ascent is steep, then it is more relaxed for a few km's.

Similar climb to 'goat fell' on the Isle of Arran. Manage to climb in a pair of vans no bother. Nice stream at you walk up so plenty of spots to dip your feet in on the way down.

I wouldn't say it's a hard hill to climb, the start through the woodlands is the most difficult stage. There is a difficult accent which is steep and rocky but there also is an easy way up.
