Started from V761840 A, cross the bridge, then across fields, later to ascend the spur starting at approx. V750836 B to the left of the fence. At about 370m, I crossed the fence to the right, as the terrain is slightly easier. However, rounding a grassy knoll, a glare of sunshine hit me, I looked up - lo and behold - sat a bull! I drifted back toward the fence as the bull got up to descend the knoll. Then in front of me was another grassy knoll, and behind it stood ... another bull! I just about made it over the fence as the bulls strode toward me. So word of advice: anyone climbing this hill may want to walk left of the fence even if the terrain is slightly rougher ...

We knocked off the three neighboring hills from the top of the Bridia path on the Kerry Way. Allow about an hour and a half one-way from this point across Beendarrig and Beann Bhán, with more time to get to the aforementioned saddle from either the Lough Acoose or Bridia valley sides.

Access via Glencar marked walk

There is a marked walk that will get you to the stream that runs off Beann Dubh, you can then follow the spur as it winds its way towards the top. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/613/comment/18163/
