This peak offers a fine view north to Slieve Gullion and its satellites, and south to County Louth, but access is difficult due to dense undergrowth. A group of stones beside the triangulation pillar on the summit may be the Bohil Breaga of Tiffcrum (i.e. the false lad or shepherd) referred to by Michael J. Murphy in his book 'Mountain Year' (p. 40).
