Tilting at windmills
Short Summary created by jackill,  6 Aug 2010
You can park at the wide entrance to the windfarm at W10616 73267 A.
Climb over the double gates and walk uphill on a good track until you come to a second set of gates.
Go through these passing turf cuttings and look for the sign for windmill three.
Go up the track to windmill three W11317 73889 B and climb the bank to your left.
Pick up a boggy track leading roughly north east which will bring you close to a wire fence heading
north.
Cross the fence and skirt the forest edge to the unmarked summit.
Note this area was very wet in July. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/646/comment/5405/

Did I mention its wet?

Theres a lot to be said for windmills. Clean, green energy machines harvesting power from boggy hills for the next quarter century, not to mention nice gravel roads.

Buried to my bogged knees on Esknabrock and then powerhosed clean on Knockbwee, I arrived at W10616 73267 A, hopped a gate and walked to windmill 3 at W11317 73889 B on a very lovely gravel road.

A 10 minute swim brought me to the summit and vistas of a vast wetness across to the Paps and back towards Gougane Barra. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/646/comment/5952/

Enjoy the gravel access road before the bog!

Followed Jackill's route out to Windmill 3 then across soft ground to the forestry boundary, following this round, then struck out across the heather to the kidney shaped contour ring of the summit area. The summit being just out sided the spot height but being within the margin of error, for a 1:50000 map.

There were lots of people around the wind farm on my visit. All waved to me as I passed, including a large group collecting peat and loading it onto their trailers. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/646/comment/6570/

Still wet - bring gaiters
by thomas_g  26 Jul 2013
Even after the massive dry spell we've had, it was still wet on the way from the turbine to the top. I met the farmer who was heading off with the horse and cart to draw in the turf, he's a lovely gent who seems bemused by people coming here walking.
