A tale of two tops. Part Two !!
by Harry Goodman  31 Oct 2015
When I first visited Legg on 6 August 2015 (see my earlier comments) I climbed the hill described in the various comments already posted only to discover that the top being described, and which lay behind some prominent communications masts within a 340m ring contour , was in fact 400m NW of the listed MV top. The listed top also lay within a 340m contour but neither top has a spot height shown on the various maps for the area. I therefore returned to Legg in September to have another look. I drove up the Navar Forest Drive to a sign for Letter Lough and parked off road on the right side H0685956660 starG. Although Fergalh in his comment refers to a track through the forest a 250m walk along the road either side of my car did not reveal it. From my parking spot I therefore walked directly up through the trees for some 150 m to H0694356742 starH and out on to heather and grass covered open ground. From here it was a short walk up to a small group of trees and out beyond them to the top. My GPS reading for the high point corresponded closely to that shown by MV's and recortded a height of some 345m. Although set in a treeless area the top is surrounded on three sides by tthe forest. While the fourth side is open to a pleasant view out across the forest it does not compare at all to that over L Erne from the other top near the communications masts. Given that both tops lie within a 340m contour and no spot heights are shown on the maps it is possible that either could contain the high point on Legg. However pending any accurate measurement I assume that the one to the SW of the hill will remain the accepted high point and not the one behind the masts !!! I would add that at present neither top can be seen from the other due to dense tree cover. Pending a resolution as to which 340m ring contour contains the true high point it is relatively easy to visit both when there. Linkback:
