Lovely little hill just outside Castletownbere.Fo .. by paddyhillsbagger   (Show all for Disert)
 
A fine hill for an evening stroll
by three5four0  11 Aug 2010
Rather than drive up the lane, mentioned by paddyhillsbagger, we parked in a blocked forestry track at V65669 44049 A. The farm lane is a short distance further on at V65756 43805 B, with its gate and sign. Paddyhillsbagger route description is spot on, with the only thing i can add, is don't be tempted by an early set of tracks, marked on the older series maps. As the way there has been blocked for some time. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1036/comment/6003/
