Unexpected summit view
Unexpected summit view
The OS map suggests that the summit of this hill is forested, whereas in fact quite a large area surrounding the summit has never been planted, so some far-reaching views are possible. Looking just east of south, the hills on the horizon are the Cuillin, with Black Hills to the right, and Red Hills to the left.
