Route Description
1. Exit the car park left towards the bridge and kilted figure, follow the Birger Natvig Road through forest to open fields, pass Forebush Farmhouse and re-enter forest by a stile alongside a locked gate.

2. Follow the track uphill. Ignore the junction off to the left. The track is now designated the Robert Watson Road. Follow this as it rises steadily, loops around to the right before descending. Ignore any junctions. Just past the wooden office building the road is rejoined.

3. Turn right and the car park is just over 1Km ahead.
