What a beautiful mountain. started on the Anglesboro side of Temple Hill, drove the forest tracks to R 829 214 A, climbed west to the ridge then north to top of Temple Hill, where i signed the visitors book hidden in the cairn. Took in Knockaterriff Beg on the way to Lyracappul, when i'd got that far couldn't resist walking along the wall to Slievecushnabinnia. The walk took about four hours and the views were spectacular, Will :-) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/29/comment/4001/
