Make sure to visit the Fingerstones

Take Cootehill road out of Cavan, Take turnoff for Stradone on right, than turn First left. After church continue up hill until you get to sign on left hand side for Castletara Millenium Trail at entrance to forest. (N46093 07898 A) Park here and walk up track, a pleasant short detour to right on stony track to Fingerstones is worthwhile. When you rejoin track continue until the track ends at forest, than go through forest to fence. Follow fence uphill until gap in fence than proceed up field to trig point.

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1267/comment/15771/
