When is the top really the top!
Having read conor74's comments questioning the "definitive" top of Cruach Mhor I would suggest that the high point of any hill/mountain is the "natural" high point and not the artificial top of a "man-made" structure such as the grotto. Another example is Slieve Donard in the Mournes where the trig pillar sits atop the shelter tower at the corner of the Mourne Wall, is undoubedly the highest point around, but is not, in my view, the true summit. Indeed the most recent edition of The Mournes 1;25,000 map notes the "trig pillar" at 853m and the "living rock" high point at 849m. In earlier editions of this map the high point was given as 850m and this is the currently accepted MV referenced high point. While there may therefore be debate re the 849m/850m highpoint there is no debate, I assume, about disregarding the artificially created 853m trig point as the high point on Donard. Any other views?

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...
