Bogs, fences and forests....
by Fergalh  1 Mar 2014
Take first left in Tempo village when coming from Enniskillen and drive to crossroads, turn right and stop at (H 33762 50208 A). This is between new house and farmhouse go up through field to top of ridge. cross another ridge and 4 fences until you get to fence with forest. go short distance through narrow section of forest to another fence the top is 20 metres away. There is a lot of muck and bog on the top of this mountain ! An alternative route may be by taking the second road left out of tempo village, some of this can be seen when crossing ridges, however it is unclear as to how you would get through the forest which is thick and wide in places.

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1193/comment/15841/

Just a Hill.

I drove up the Edenmore Rd out of Tempo and parked at H3402949167 B room for two cars. Continue in rd and cross fence at side of forest this allows you easy access to point adjacent to summit where forest area is not too wide as mentioned by previous comment H3365849180 C.From car to summit straight line is less than 500m.

Exceeded My (Low) Expectations
by Aidy  21 Apr 2016
Sunday was a dull, overcast day, so I decided to bag a few of my local 100, saving better days for something other than what I thought would be less than exciting summits. Its all relative of course, and just being out walking anywhere is a pleasure, but the hills in this area are undeniably not the greatest. With low expectations, Derrin turned out to be not so bad. Taking Peter Walker's route from Track 2783 was an easy way up, and the hill provides pleasant views to neighbouring hills and further afield to Cuilcagh, Benbulbin, and the Navar viewing point near Legg Hill. The sun even broke through occasionally for the only time that day, to illuminate patches of the countryside below. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1193/comment/18500/
