Walk or Drive.
by sandman  9 Jun 2014
On turning in on the road which runs thru the townland of Orchard Upper i was greeted with a very mucky road at the rear of the first farmyard but fortunately this was short and the road afterwards was a tarred surface up to the forest entrance S5632989179 B. As this gate is normally opened good parking exists but now you can choose to Drive ,Walk, or Bike as a well maintained forest road exists to within meters of the summit.
