Little Sugar Loaf Hill Giolspar A name in Irish

This hill is also known as Giltspur Mountain [PNCW], of which the Irish version Giolspar is a transliteration. The name Giltspur, which originally refers to a townland on the northern slopes, is explained by a transaction in the late 12th century, whereby Dermod MacGiollamocholmog granted one carucate of land in Kilruddery to Richard de Felda for a pair of gilt spurs, to be presented to him and his heirs each year at Michelmas [PNCW]. Giltspur Mountain is thus a rare example of an English language name which is so old that it has been replaced by another, Little Sugar Loaf.   Little Sugar Loaf is the 1066th highest place in Ireland.

Nice relaxing Sunday Stroll
by ablighe  21 Jun 2010
Have climbed this several times. Although alot smaller than The 'main' Sugar Loaf, in some ways it is alot nicer. On a nice clear day the views are fantastic. In Summer there are alot of Wild flowers growing on the slopes which are nice, its also alot less degraded than its neighbour and makes for a more pleasant walk as it attracts less crowds. Definely worth a stroll if you have nothing on some afternoon. I accessed it from Kilmacanogue side. Was up & down in 1 and half hours at a nice leisurely pace taking in the views.

Spiral Hunting
by Savlon  29 Jul 2010
Fionn_rocks- I went up this mountain today to have a look for the possible spirals. Found them quite easily. They are typical in design but I can't be certain they are not more modern. My son also found another possible candidate. I can let you know the location if you wish. Thanks a mil to Dessie. The hill was a lovely walk- beautiful heather and gorse- but very windswept on the eastern side-the fresh air made me feel alive- and the views were unbelievable. I've wanted to climb for ages, living in it's shadow most of my life. The only little niggle (tiny) was that you could here the noise of the N-11 most of the time- but it wasn't a visible scar on the landscape that destroyed the view, so it didn't spoil the fun!

Spirals
by three5four0  31 Aug 2010
Climbed Little Sugar Loaf after the ascent of Great Sugar Loaf, earlier that morning. Found the spirals cut into the rock on the summit, but not those on the north top mentioned by mcrtchly. New or old, I don't know. But if new, they are certainly more pleasing to the eye than the large lettering casting doubts on the parentage of the inhabitants of one village in Kerry, that adores the top of one MV list hill!

A fine little summit and after the hubris of Great Sugar Loaf, peaceful as well. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/909/comment/6073/

Misty view.
by simon3  16 May 2017
From some angles the Little Sugar Loaf has a very distinctive double top, like a sort of reduced version of Errigal.
This misty picture was taken from Carrickgollogan around 6km away. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/909/comment/19511/
