Pleasant Views For Minimum Effort
by Aidy  18 Mar 2016
Started from H48539 95495 C, parking in front of an abandoned farm house. Crossing a gate beside the house, it was just a case of bearing almost directly northwest up a grassy field, then over rougher, heather covered ground, to the summit. An easy walk, with the only difficulty being getting over a few awkward fences. Not the most dramatic of tops, but pleasant enough views around the Sperrins, and further afield, particularly towards the Derryveagh Mountains on the horizon. Definitely worth the minimum effort required. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/816/comment/18461/
