A quick ascent up Taur via a farm track

Descent: 36m

Places: Start at R22815 09866, Taur, end at Start

I would ignore the eastern part of my route where I ascended, it's just stupid. Start where I finished at this farm gate which is a little west from the large layby where I parked.
There's a path most of the way to the summit which is marked by a trig pillar.

Again like Thomas G I tried to link Taur and Taurbeg as I thought conditions in the forestry might have changed since his visit but there is a lot of fallen trees causing obstuctions as you enter the forestry to the north in the direction of these turbines.
