Brandon Hill at 515 metres high is an impressive sight from the bridge at Graiguenamanagh which is approx 20 metres above sea level. I followed Simons directions and can confirm his grid ref for the car park as per the GPS at S698412 A. From the car park a route straight up the mountain takes you for approx 100 metres over some very rough ground. Alternatively follow the path for 50 metres, take a left turn then a right at a junction and then turn right gently uphill at the gate along a path. After 100 metres a path left takes you straight to the top. The mission cross according to the inscription was erected in July 1984 by public subscription by the parish of Graiguenamanagh.
