On 3 May 2013 we parked at the purpose made parking area for the Kilbrannish Looped Walk S8431156818 C and after a short walk up a stoney path to join the main track we followed the waymarked trail (purple arrows) in an anti-clockwise direction. About 1.5 km along the looped walk turned up left W S855575 D. (Before continuing we detoured out and back to Greenoge. For details see my comments on Greenoge). Continuing up the purple trail we then went N and, a short way along, W again crossing the top of Kilbrannish Hill (Pt. 404) at S846574 E) actually on the track. Once up out of the trees we had views, somewhat restricted by mist, across to Mt. Leinster and it's E ridge leading out to Blackrock Mt.. Where the looped walk turned sharply down to the left at S8355057600 F we had to continue along the main track for about 100 metres to the top, an undistinguished high point along a raised ditch running parallel to the path. Once back at the looped walk we descended steeply down S and then ESE to the start. In all, including the 2k detour out and back to Greenoge, the walk took us two hours and was just under 8km in total. A pleasant introduction to four days walking in the Blackstairs.
