Ascent Trip Report

Parked on the B7055 just outside Wiston Lodge. Walked through the grounds then across agricultural ground. As the ground steepened just to the left of Pap Craig the path began to zigzag. After the steepest bits were over a new path between two fences took us straight to the top. There was a good view with dappled sunlight over the hills to the south until we reached the Dimple from where on in we were in the cloud. So no views from the top. On the way down by the same route the views were less good as the weather began to turn to rain.
