Fencing a way to the Top
by eamonoc  12 Apr 2017
11/2/2016, Started at M091379 at forest entrance, weather was very foggy with limited visibility. Walked on forest track for about 200mts, then crossed fence and keeping the forest on my right made my way over very rough wet ground to a tiny Lochan at M09879 36874 B, at the southern tip of the Lough, a newly constructed wire fence can be followed over wet and boggy ground all the way to the summit at M 11845 36983 C, a distance of approx 2km. Just to advise on the other side of the fence, SW a very large Windfarm is under construstion at present. Total distance from car to car 5.3km Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1155/comment/18432/
