Spectacular coastal outpost.
Short Summary created by simon3,  6 Feb 2012
One place to start is at around Q389 100 A going west intially, then north then north-east. In places the going is over rough dwarf furze, so long trousers are recommended. The walk up and down could take around 90 minutes. The summit is accompanied by the ruins of a Napoleonic era lookout post.
There are fine views to SW of the Three Sisters and north to the nearby Beenmore and further to the north end of the Brandon ridge.
It is possible to walk NE towards Beenmore along one of the most spectacular cliff edges in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1004/comment/5763/
