New Comment: Easy stroll from the West
by markmjcampion  14 Feb 2021
Plenty of room to park at the junction at V85015 73408 A. Walk a few metres north to the sheep pen and east up along the fence line with the forest on your right. The ground is boggy on places but the worst of it can be avoided easily enough. If you don't manage to top out in less than 30 minutes you need to find some even smaller hills for practice!
Grand views abound from here...down to Beara and up to Peakeen, Derrygarriff, Purple and the reeks.
From the top I decided to go nuts and headed NW to the first col and then headed west to the road which is something I most definitely would not do again as hopping between clumps of reeds to avoid drowning is really not my thing.
40 min round trip. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1090/comment/22371/
