Lackeen is home to six large wind turbines, and as a result has a good track that runs all the way to the summit area. Although there are gates, they were open and I found myself driving close to the edge of what could be termed an honest ‘peak-bag’. To ease my conscience I left the car at S981 708 A and quickly reached the summit area along the track. The ‘whooshes’ of the giant turbines were impressive. (pdtempan experienced a strange whoosh sound on Kirikee in August, but no turbines there! Was that mystery ever solved?)

The presence of these wind turbines on our hills is an interesting juxtaposition. They take from the local natural environment, while simultaneously symbolising the effort to be green and develop clean power sources. Personally I like them, although I understand they have caused lots of damage in Mayo and elsewhere.

There are good views across to Ballycumber, Muskeagh and Seskin from Lakeen. But for me there was no real excitement or sense of achievement being up here. There was no sense of isolation, which was compounded by the fact a farm vehicle drove past me as I stood at the summit. Perhaps an accessible place to bring children to see these turbines up close, but not a place to seek solitude. There is no forestry at the summit as shown on the OSI map.
