Agree with comments regarding Hen Mountain - definitely worth a stop on the way to Cock Mountain, with three interesting tors, be warned though they are steep-sided and in windy/misty/icy weather could be dangerous. Cock Mountain itself is also worth a trip giving great views over the Spelga Resevoir. There are two Cairns and the OS Map seems to indicate the more northerly is the higher at 505m. From the car park on Sandbank Road to the west the southerly one seems clearly higher and my GPS agreed with this, giving it a height of 505 and the northerly one 500! Anyone know which is the higher? Just to be sure you've reached the top, I suggest you visit both of them! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/447/comment/2951/
