New Comment: Bruse Summer 2017
by TommyMc  4 Sep 2017
Since a big gorse fire in 2016, this hill is once more easily accessible to casual walkers and has been widely visited this summer.

An easy approach is possible by taking the L6636 minor road off the R198 Arva-Cornafean road at 53.937356 B, -7.538388 C and going approx. 1 mile uphill until you reach the brow of the hill, at 53.926307 D, -7.525937 E. There is very limited parking here so be prepared to walk a few hundred yards along the road if necessary. Just beyond the brow of the hill, enter with care through a gate, and proceed through two pasture fields and another rougher field. Some spots are wet but the area is generally dry in reasonable weather. Negotiate fencing with care and do not disturb animals.

You then proceed onto the largely featureless mountain proper. The summit is a few hundred yards onwards.

With the vegetation burned away, it is a pleasant walk although the depths of the uncontrolled vegetation made it virtually impassable when we tried it around 3 years ago. This vegetation will grow again so now is a good time to visit.

There are excellent views from the summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/994/comment/19706/
