A hill that offers so much to all its visitors. Gorse lined pathways, wooded areas covered at present with bluebells, wide heather covered plains, not to mention the large rock formation that carries you to mcArts fort at the top. A slow meander, a gentle...More

I really like this walk to the summit, and has a great view on a clear day. Do bring a camera as you will be sorry if you don't. Can be a bit muddy so wear proper footwear. Not for high heels. :-)

It’s easier on the lower path, it is a proper path and there are places to rest and leads up to the castle itself - I would test it first though as you know your mum better than me!
