Potential Access Issues
by Aidy  10 Jun 2015
Went up yesterday via the route described by Harry Goodman, and it needs no further description, as once you're on the track you can't go wrong. However, I should mention that access might not be as clear cut as it once was. I was directed to the sheds mentioned by Harry, and spoke to the man who seemed to own the land and the engineering business based in the sheds. I must emphasise that he was a really nice man and very friendly, but he was cleariy hesitant about letting me have access and asked a lot about what I was going up for and how I knew about the track on his land. The more I chatted to him, the more he relaxed. He did then say he didn't want to turn anybody away, but I got the sense that he was a bit overwhelmed by sheer numbers of people passing through both his business and his farm. He also hinted at issues with unauthorised access by quads, leading to possibly a failed insurance claim by someone. As I say, he was very friendly, and was clearly reluctant to turn anyone away, but also reluctant to continue giving access. Might be wise to look at possilbe alternative routes, and it might lessen the strain on the likeable owner if not every hiker was passing this way. I also got the impression however, that not all the landowners in the area would be accommodating.

Great little hill anyway, with fine views, and spent a whle exploring the rest of the island too. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1025/comment/18016/
