Nice views over Fertha Valley

Left car under viaduct, parking space for one just beyond one of the stanchions on the Glenflesk side of the stream at V58143 88566 A . Scrambled up and across viaduct itself, and up north east shoulder of the hill. About half an hour of an ascent, was moving slowly after bagging a few more earlier in the day. A couple of fences to negotiate. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1094/comment/17558/
