The end summit of 4 Hill Day
by three5four0  28 Sep 2011
There is no real ideal spot to park along this minor road, without blocking it or an entrance into a property. So the wife dropped me at the road end at V 460 808 A and returned to Cahersiven. From here I followed the track to a cottage, there was no one around to ask, so i continued following the track around right above the cottage, going through a gate here. Further up the track I came to a very large and fortified gate ( see attached picture ) with a faded sign attached to it. Given its faded nature and that fact no one was around to enquire, I decided to push on for a quick ascent, before anyone noticed my presence.

Continued on up the track, till it ended around the 280 metre contour, from which the last slope is clearly visible a head, with just the usual fences to cross. I would say the views are good, but the mist rolled in, just as I gained the summit. I returned the by the way of my ascent. On reaching the gate I noticed dogs and what appeared to be several people by the cottage, I had passed by to access the track earlier. So, with the notice fresh in my mind, I decided to descended a shorter track back to the road from the gate at V 462 811 B. This leads quickly ( & very slippery ! ) back down to the road, with only a very bent gate to negotiate at its end.

It was here I rang Mrs three5four0, to arrange my collection. Only to find out she had parked up by the Farmers Cottage, that I had just avoided, and was happily talking to the farmer and his dog. Who was quite friendly and was interested where we had been walking before and what a terrible summer it had been and it was quite all right for her to park up in his drive way and await my arrival.

Still I wouldn't turn up with a large group of people here, one or two and a polite request to use his access track to the hill appears to be fine. For groups the forestry tracks on the North west side of the hill should provided good access. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/886/comment/6546/

Not climbed Castlequin yet, but I did get to take a few pictures of it from Knocknadobar. Photo shows Cahersiveen below to the left, Valencia Island behind and The Skelligs in the distance. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/886/comment/3603/
