This is a short favourite walk of my Father-in-Law as it reminds of his home in Wales.
This walking route begins in the small farming village of Luthrie.
There is limited parking and you have to take care where you leave you car so you don't accidentally block any one.
The path is easy going at first and soon turns into a rough farm track. The route can be slightly hard going and a good level of fitness is required. Take care in winter as the ground can be boggy in areas.
Half way along the route there are a few plantations which you pass - care must be take at this section as you can loose your footing quickly in foul weather.
Towards the summit the path gets rough and disappears in places but you will quickly see your destination which is marked by a trig point and a small cairn. The view all around is stunning making the summit an ideal lunch spot.
You can descend from the summit heading North but I would only approach that route down if the weather has been dry for a few weeks as it is really slippery and boggy.
A nice little walking challenge.
