Starting at the farm track at the top of the Corker Hill at M31202 10188 C, the views are visible immediately on the short walk up to Abbey Hill which can be accessed from the farm track at M31108 10466 D. Descend down the back of Abbey Hill to the splendid Corcomeroe Abbey at M29472 08937 E. Cross a field which will bring you to a road, follow this north for about 100 meters where there is another track at M29704 08664 F. Follow this track which leads to the Oughtmana Churches at M30595 07885 G. At the back of the churches there is a gate which leads out on to Turlough Hill. The first 100 meters is quite slippy and there are some briars closing in on the trail, but after this there are no issues climbing to the large cairn at the summit of Turlough Hill . From here follow a ridge north east to spot height 2251 and then north to Oughtmana summit. From Oughtmana descend north back to the start point. Fantastic views but be careful not to get distracted from the craggy terrain underfoot. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1009/comment/20089/
