A quick up and down route
by Harry Goodman  17 Aug 2011
Climbed this hill on Fri 5 Aug 2011. As a route had already been described by three5four0 for climbing it from the NE I thought I would see if an alternative might be possible from the S of the hill. I parked with permission, off road, in front of a bungalow at C4071546496 E and walked a few metres SW along the road to a lane on the right C4067946479 F which led up to a large conctete water storage tank C4071446697 G. Once there I made directly up the hillside over short heather and grass and more steeply near the top. The high point is marked by a trig pillar at C4041046974 H. I had fine views S to Slieve Snaght and Slieve Main and SW to the prominent cone of Bulbin, Slievekeeragh, Raghtin More and Mamore Head. Directly N was Malin Head Ireland's most northerly point and Croughalough our most northerly hill, visited by me on the previous evening. This short walk can easily be completed in 30 minutes (even allowing for a stop to take in the views) and is 1.58km. It also has the advantage that it is close by to Binnion for anyone wishing to bag a number of tops in the area. I am also pleased to record the very positive reaction I got from the local landowner to my request to park in front of his house. When I came down he even asked if I would like a cup of tea an offer I declined, with thanks, as I headed off in search of my next hill, Binnion.
