26 Dec 03. Took a post Christmas squelch up the muddy foot track from the car park in Glendine Gap. Crossing a stream that follows the line of the "Slieve Bloom Way" we went up through the fog to the OS marker (at toe level, not a pillar) at the summit. Only spotted this because the fog lifted to reveal a panoramic view over a broad expanse of the Midlands, BRING BINOCULARS. Up and down in forty five minutes. I have used the road through Glendine often enough but this was my first trip to the highest point in Offaly. Well worth a visit... Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/399/comment/796/
