Parking nearer the hill is not really possible without possibly / probably annoying people. I therefore parked next to the cattle grid where there is room to park out the way of the two roads converging. This left me with a gentle 1.25m walk up to the hill top and back along the country lane and then the rough track up to the highest point.

The country lane is a nice and easy walk. | Tamron Adaptall SP 24-48 @ 24mm, f11.

Views are good on the walk and you can seeĀ Blaen-y-cwm, a 416m tree covered hill nearby – which is much better to look at from outside than being stood on top of it and not being able to see anything.

The actual highest summit point is just off the path, but on private land surrounded by your traditional barbed-wire fence. I’m not a purist in these cases and I’m happy enough to snap a few photos from the track – I’m not hopping a barbed wire fence or climbing a gate just to physically walk that last couple of metres.

Not a bad little hill with some decent views, easy one to tick off. I headed back to the car and drove nearerĀ Blaen-y-cwm to walk that one as well, which is recommended if you are in the area.
