New Comment: Lhe lowest high point
by TommyV  2 Nov 2018
Westmeath has the lowest county high point of all of the counties but this is by no means the least spectacular hill. It is surrounded by a lovely beech forest with a number of trails. As it is in Westmeath which is a very flat county there are great views of the midlands, particularly out over Lough Sheelin. jackills directions are the directions I followed.
