This is the kind of "one off" hill that Summiteers have to tackle on its own from time to time in order to get through their List in a particular area. I had done the combinations and permutations and realised that there was no way I could get this outlier into a coherent route at this stage, given my previous walks in the area, and as always, adhering to the principle that you never walk the same hill twice. The biggest decision of the day was whether to tackle the "one off" first, or leave it until after the longer route. I chose do it first, knowing that if I left it until last it would be far too easy to give in to tiredness and leave it for another day. I should explain that I am concentrating on Arderins and Vandeleur-Lynams, so there was never any possibility that I would stray onto nearby Seefin.
