Worth a visit, if only for the views.
Short Summary created by Peter Walker, Harry Goodman,  23 Mar 2015
Take a track starting at C7279123577 A and follow it up E and then N to a ruined TV or radio mast. Continue out NW over the broad grass and heather covered moorland top to gain a low ridge and fence some 200m ahead. At the fence turn left and follow it along noting a small but prominent cairn in the adjacent field on the right at C7289124269 B. The actual high point of the hill will be a matter of debate and personal preference but appears to lie along the fence line or near the cairn. There are fine views across NW to Binevenagh and S to to Donald's Hill and the sharp prominent peak of Benbradagh. Just under 3km up and back.

Just where is the high point on this hill?
by Harry Goodman  23 Mar 2015
On 16 March 2015 I parked off road, on the grass verge. Nearby I then took take a track at C7279123577 which wound up E and then N to a ruined TV/radio mast . Once there I headed NW across the hummocky moorland of grass and heather to a low ridge like crest ahead. This was topped by a wire fence which I followed along left before crossing it and making for a small but well made cairn at C7289124269. From a visual perspective it appeared to me that the cairn may not sit on the highest point of the hill. This may lie nearby between the cairn and the fence or along the fence line. Exactly where will be a matter of opinion. I would also add that, in my opinion, the MV co-ordinate for the top of this hill, C729241 Cbased on Pt. 337 shown on OSNI Sheet 8, is incorrect and should read C729242 D with the latter reading being some 100m closer to the cairn. There are fine views across NW to Binevenagh and S to Donald's Hill and the sharp prominent peak of Benbradagh. In all the walk up and back was just over 3km including some time spent stomping around searching for the highest point. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1105/comment/17888/
