A highpoint, easy to reach from a road and with an excellent view.
Short Summary created by simon3  15 Feb 2011
The view from this summit is excellent to the NE over the area around Arroo.
The obvious way to get here is from the road up to Truskmore from which it is around 280m over low, boggy heather.
There is a limited amount of parking around G 74400 46800 A (access road to transmitter) and nearby. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1054/comment/5813/
