The yeast plant - to the west of the warehouses - generates a thermal recognisable by its smell.
When conditions permit - it is good start for climbs and possible long distance flying.

 
 

Meet & Carpark:

The meeting point is at the top (N) of School Lane (opposite Dumyat Centre).
Cars can usually be parked along School Lane - alternatively use the Dumyat Centre car-park.
No vehicles are allowed uphill on the track - we have currently lost access.

 

Access:

Access up hill is by the track to Jerah Farm.
Before the deer fence - preceding the First Inchna Burn - take right and follow the fence.
Avoid trampling over planted trees.
After a levelling of the way; proceed to the stone-wall ahead.
Keeping the wall on your right, follow it to a corner.
At the corner, it is necessary to negotiate the wall and wires to gain access to the cairn.
