Re: Classifications
Munros are Scotland only (unless the grasping bufties of the SMC have extended the category because sales of the Munro book are dropping.) It's a very elastic definition - a principal summit over 3000 feet but who's to define principal? An area like the Mounth has 13 Munros on the plateau, but if you accepted the 500 foot drop and reascent which separates indiviuals Corbetts (our next category 2000 -2500), only 2 would survive. Lists are better if they're only in your head - there's been controversy about super-pylons going through Drumochter recently but the ugliest thing on the A9 is the acned faces of over-used Munros, Gael Charn and Beinn a Ghlo. Incidentally, how many 3000 footers does Ireland have? I've seen claims for about 40 squillion but this seems to include every divot on the ridge to Carrauntouhil.

Westaston Hill: The top?
Barry a day ago.
I think the highest point is likely about 175 metres in a WSW direction from the mast. I'm judging this from aerial photography and DTM which shows a rocky outcrop in a small forest clearing. DTM ...

Barranisky: Barniskea or Barniskey
Barry a day ago.
Might be worth adding that Ballymoyle Hill might be more appropriate name for this height. Called that in Coillte records. Whilst Barranisky is spelt thus on OS six inch maps, note that Hall Nevil...
