Decent little top
by Colin Murphy  10 May 2010
There is just room to park at point 027 685 A where a track leads to the SW. Head along this for about fifty metres and then turn directly west up a field which is a mixture of grass and clumps of heather. The terrain is steepish and the heather becomes denser as you ascend, but its not too much trouble. If you fancy this top on its own, the round trip will take you no more than ninety minutes. The top offers fine views of the Slaheny River Valley and the surrounding hills and is marked by a few upright rocks. It's not a huge challenge but its a far nicer top than some of its better known bigger brothers. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/772/comment/4706/
