Climbed up via the steep stone steps from Swirls car park. Was a bit of a tiring expedition as none of us are used to such steep climbs what with living in flat Ipswich! Thanks goes to the bloke in tourist office who told us it's the easiest route up there!! We were all puffing and panting, with the exception of Martin who seemed to have the agility of a young mountain goat! Very glad to get to the top, but it was well worth it for the fantastic views over the ridges (luckily we had good weather and could see quite far!) This was a brilliant enjoyable day out and a perfect way to finish our holiday.
