Wonderful landscape, so-so summit
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  28 May 2012
This top is usually done as part of a larger walk e.g. when doing the Corranabinnias, but can be bagged in isolation in about three hours if you choose to do so. Turn off the N59 at Bunnahowna Bridge (857 965 A) and continue up narrow road for 500m until you reach a gate, which is part of an official Greenway walking trail. Go through gate and continue for about 500m, where the trail branches to the left, but also deteriorates in quality – you may choose to park here or continue up the trail for about 800m but it is driveable only with caution. Eventually this track peters out but there is room to park and turn at the end. From this point continue directly north up the gently rising eastern side of Glennamaddoo valley for 2.5 km. The ground is generally firm in dry weather – a mixture of long grasses and heather and shouldn’t present too many obstacles. Then veer slightly to the north east for 500m which will take you to the top, which isn’t particularly distinctive – a grassy area with a pile of stones marking the high point.
