Small hill but worthy of the climb
by Harry Goodman  25 Jul 2013
I climbed this small hill on Wed. 17 July 2013 starting at H0378894017, as suggested by Wildcat. As I walked NNW down the stone and gravel track a local man, heading out to cut turf, stopped and gave me a lift to a gate across the track some 1.2km further along. Once through the gate it was a short walk to where the track turned sharply left at a small tree plantation H040955. Leaving the track I headed up the slope NE keeping the trees on my left . Due to the recent dry weather the ground was soft and springy but would at other times be quite boggy in the initial stage of the climb. On the way I crossed a fence at H0417895602. Continuing NE I picked up another fence heading up in the same direction. At its high point this fence is only a few metres from the prominent summit cairn at H0455095983. Allowing some time at the top to take in the magnificent panorama in all directions this is a walk that can be done comfortably in two hours (even if the walker is not offered a lift along the initial track!!). To the N I saw Slieve Snaght and the ridge along to Dooish with the sharp peak of Errigal and the outline of Muckish further back. Most prominent however was the view W and S to the Bluestacks with the prominent line of tops running from the Barnesmore Gap NNE to Gaugin Mt . I returned by way of ascent, this time without the offer of a lift on the track back up to the car. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/883/comment/15049/
