Part of the summit is literally a tip, but if you park in the carpark near the village church (ST556668), it's a short quiet walk up to the antenna towers on the hill top. This is a very easy summit with virtually no vertical distance to be walked.
After dropping family off at the airport, I drove the five minutes to the carpark and walked in glorious sunshine to a convenient area within the activation zone.
I soon found a rotten fence post with a convenient hole in which to place the antenna pole, and was soon on the air.
A quick activation with 30 QSOs and 13 DXCC .
I had other things planned for later on.
