I started from a small road near the Glenflesk Art Gallery (on the Glenflesk to Muckross Road) The road passes a few farms and then winds up a long way onto the shoulder of the mountain as a good bog track. You can head straight for the top when the path runs out. At one of the farms there is a dog that likes to accompany people up the mountain (a large longhaired labrador/retriever type). His owner kept him while I passed but I met him up there later all the same.
Apart from that, a lovely peak with good access, a dramatic summit, and plenty of wild land to the south and west. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/195/comment/187/
