Join the Macmillan Way West in a north-westerly direction along the main Quantock ridge. After 1.9 miles/3km at ST 129398 stay R on the main track, leaving the Macmillan Way which bears L and downhill. Continue north past Bicknoller Post to the trig point on Beacon Hill. Drop down the northern side of this hill slightly and take the next sharp R onto a path going south-east to the ridge of Longstone Hill (4 miles/6.4km). Stay south here dropping down into the woods at Lady’s Edge and following the stream L to the next path junction where you turn R and continue south uphill and back onto the open moorland. Turn L at the main track and then R over the hill and past the trig point back to the start.
