Hill With Character
by Aidy  17 Mar 2015
Climbed after turning off the N56, shortly after crossing the Gweebarra River bridge, heading north. Parked on a minor road, which doesn't seem to be named, on the east side of the hill between Toome Lough and the smaller Lough Achush. From there, it was a short walk up the gentle slope to the summit, marked by a trig pillar. Great views on the way up over the two loughs, and at the top, more views opened up to the west and the north. The hill itself, though small, has a rocky character, and I found it a pleasure to walk.

Thanks for the trig pillar
by cnocadoir  3 Apr 2015
Thanks for posting that walk. Been back that network of boreens, found a court tomb and early inscribed cross, but didn't know about that trig pillar. Sounds like a much better walk than the one to Croaghleconnell trig piller (next one NE in Derryleconnell Near). For that one you need wellies the whole way to near the summit. Had hard showers the whole way. Nice view also, but looking forward to Toome! Go raibh matih agat. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1322/comment/17904/
