Short but rewarding summit walk
by three5four0  28 Sep 2011
Drove out to Bolus Head and parked in a small lay-by (room for one car only) at 395628 B. Walked a short distance along the road, went through a gate on the right and followed a track up hill to a shallow col between Bolus Hill and the spot height 284. At this col there is a fence with a gate (& way marked way markers), I turned right and followed the the fence up hill, reaching the summit quickly in the teeth of a gale. This small summit, like the others in the Iveragh NW group, gave fine & expansive views of the surrounding coast and hills, with the barracks giving a fine backdrop for those who like their photos in BW!
