Easy stroll to the top and back.
Short Summary created by jackill, Harry Goodman,  1 Feb 2014
Park at S817546 A, the parking area for the "Nine Stones". Note a clear track going WNW up the hillside. This leads up initially over a subsidiary hump and then,with a slight change in direction W around S812548 B, up to the summit cairn.The slope is gentle and the track good with one rockey patch to be crossed. Distance up and back is 2km and can be walked comfortably in 30 to 40 minutes. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/412/comment/5171/
