COMMENTS for Beann Dubh 1 of 1
by ahendroff  21 Mar 2009 Started from V761840 (Point A), cross the bridge, then across fields, later to ascend the spur starting at approx. V750836 (Point 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 ...
Point A: V761 840 Point B: V750 836
