New Comment: Hill With Character
by Aidy  17 Mar 2015
Climbed after turning off the N56, shortly after crossing the Gweebarra River bridge, heading north. Parked on a minor road, which doesn't seem to be named, on the east side of the hill between Toome Lough and the smaller Lough Achush. From there, it was a short walk up the gentle slope to the summit, marked by a trig pillar. Great views on the way up over the two loughs, and at the top, more views opened up to the west and the north. The hill itself, though small, has a rocky character, and I found it a pleasure to walk.
