A short walk to an ancient site
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  10 Jul 2010
This hill can be approached from the N15 by turning right at H315967 A on to a minor road which is very narrow, at times hedge lined and is used as access to the fields by various farm machinery so care is needed. It soon deteriorates to a poor but passable surface on the way up to H3053897694 B where there is just enough room for one car to park off road. Once over the farm gate go SW down the field to H3025697407 C, cross the fence and go up to H3009097440 D and another fence. Cross over and follow up, keeping a fence to the left side, to H3002997554 E. Cross yet another fence and walk out SW across the heather for approximately 100 metres to the trig pillar set atop a small grass and heather covered mound at H2993897466 F, shown on the OS map as an ancient Hill Fort and Cairn. Part of the mound has been dug out either as part of an exploratory excavation or by vandalisim. There are excellent views SE across Strabane to Bessy Bell and the Sperrins and to the N and W the hills of South Donegal. Return by way of ascent, A walk of some 2km and approximately 60 metres of climb. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1028/comment/5787/
