One of the finest small tops in Ireland
Short Summary created by wicklore, Colin Murphy,  19 Aug 2013
There is parking for several cars in a small lay-by at 967 496 A. Cross a flat area to the east, which can be quite marshy in places, even in summer, but is passable. After a few hundred metres you will encounter the rocky lower slopes of the hill. At point 980 500 B turn in a SE direction, the terrain underfoot mostly solid rock, but with boggy patches every now and then, and alternately steep and gentle slopes. After 1 km you will reach the summit, and while three 'cairns' of sorts mark different high points on the top, which is a mostly rocky area of a few hundred square metres, the one you encounter first from this approach is the highest point. It is quite identifiable as the summit stones are of white rock sitting on brown peat, (which is virtually the only patch of peat on the summit area). The views in all directions are quite remarkable. Time for round trip less than two hours at a fairy easy pace. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/846/comment/5605/
