Re Revised Summit Lists
This is brilliant - added three summits to my total without leaving my chair. I was able to comment on Cave Hill as I walked it recently enough, and Greenan Mountain because I've been up there often. The third, Fearns Hill, I won't comment on until I climb it again as it was too long ago and the memory is too vague. However, I wouldn't recommend travelling far. In my opinion it was a bit bland. Locally, we call it "The Fearn" and there is a minor road from Castlederg to Clady which passes very close to the summit, and a road branching off taking you closer still. This means if you are in the area it would take very little effort to reach the summit, but not worth a journey specifically to get there.

If I recall right, the views from the road which I travel daily, are at some points better than from the top itself, but my memory of the summit is vague, and I'll climb it again and write a proper comment just to confirm. The view in the photo is towards the Bluestacks with mist covering lower ground.

Note: I have since revisited the hill, and the views are much better than I remembered. I have now posted a full comment. Hope I didn't put anybody off!

While not very challenging, recent felling means the views along the way and from the summit are pleasant enough. A nice spot for a lunchtime walk.
