The only trig Pillar with a seat !
by Fergalh  25 Aug 2014
Drive onto Lettermore island, then at Lettermore village take first right. Park at space just before cottage at L89143 29114 C. Then proceed up hill to see a stunning vista. And this has the only trig pillar with a seat on all four sides ! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1372/comment/17624/

Trig-bench
by fieldoptic  5 May 2015
As mentioned before Lettermore Hill has a pretty well fitted out trig pillar. A very pleasant quick walk to the top is worth it if you're in the area. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1372/comment/17976/
