Short Summary created by simon3,  29 Jun 2010
An obvious way up Leean is from the SE starting at around G8061 3779 A. The short ground cover makes walking easy. There are extensive views particularly towards the Keelogyboys to the West and Benbo to the East. This a well-researched archaeological site with features such as hut sites, boulder circles and perching boulders.
