A seldom visited but worthwhile top.
by Harry Goodman  4 Nov 2013
On Tues 22 Oct I climbed this hill in a round that also included Croaghbrack. (For details of the first part of the walk see my comments on Croaghbrack). Leaving Croaghbrack top I headed down W into a barren little valley with L Black nestling in it off to my left. This is ground that I suspect does not see many hill walkers in the course of a year and the complete absence of any evidence of footfall would support this contention. The walk down was gentle but once there the valley floor was quite marshy. Once across it was a short but steep climb up to the summit area of the hill. Like it's near neighbor, Croaghbrack, this hill is endowed with a fine rocky crest and the high point is marked by a neat little cairn set on one of the rocky outcrops. From the top I headed down SSE and, maintained this direction across the E flank of Brown's Hill, before continuing up to the ridge ahead, a wide and flat peat hagged area H0308889361. From here a change in direction to SE soon led me across to a fence junction H0337789178 near a noticeable large boulder. From there I was able to follow the fence down SE to join the forest track H0376388647 which I had used earlier in the day on my way to Croaghbrack . Once there I turned right and followed it out for 2.2km back to the car H0422587374 D. In all my circuit over these two outliers of the main Bluestacks Range covered 10.5km, was not overly taxing and very worthwhile. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/820/comment/15250/
