The summit of Monkside Hill
The summit of Monkside Hill
I climbed Monkside Hill from the north-east. At the top I was expecting a trig point, but this large flat region was a surprise to me. Also a mystery, though no doubt someone will be able to explain it. I noticed afterwards that there is a driveable track from the south, but it is a very long way from the nearest road at Kielder Water.
