New Comment: A walk around Kerry Head
by TommyV  2 Nov 2018
There is room to park a car at Q73964 31239 C. It's possible to follow the Kerry way West and then South to the summit of this hill. The Kerry way runs across the unmarked high point at 217, but I decided to go for the route to the trig point at 215. This involved about 200m of walking over scorched heather. I was happy enough with the trig point so I didn't feel the need to continue along the Kerry way to the unmarked high point of 217. Not a lot to recommend on this hike.
