I still love the hills, and intend to join the Upper Hall before I hang up my boots. Started down in Kent of all places; on a trip to see an old friend I stopped off at Detling Hill, where I enjoyed great views over the Weald, before bagging Cheriton Hill. An added bonus was it turned out I'd misread my holiday allocation and should have been at work. In February I picked up four McPhies on Colonsay; lovely little hills, and the whole island is recommended, especially the fantastic beach at Kiloran Bay. Nothing then till June, when the superseded Pilsdon Pen was the best of my three in Dorset. The hill fort is very interesting. On Staple Hill I was delighted when I found the trig point, as it was hidden in the forest. They were felling trees at the time, so I wonder if it is now surrounded by just bits of branches.
