A typical Binnion. .. by paddyhillsbagger   (Show all for The Hill of Mael)
 
Unusually named hills with great views.

Take the Finea road out of Castlepollard, Take the third turn right (N45749 73437 A), proceed through crossroads just after last house park on the right (N45762 75540 B) where there is some space. Walk to gate on track and cross gate. Just before forest barrier turn right and proceed through forest that is being felled whilst keeping remains of overgrown boreen on your left. Eventually you will come to field, cross field to fence here is a gap in the gorse. Head up hill here until you come to another fence. Cross through gap in fence and the trig pillar is at the top of the hill. Great views can be had here on way back if you have time cross barrier and proceed through forest to the top of the rock of curry also nice views from here.

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1226/comment/15855/
