Good views for a quick jaunt
Short Summary created by thomas_g  14 Feb 2015
There are decent views from the top considering it's only 300m, the obvious route is from the NW via a field which can be accessed via a gate on the 'main' road. Access from the south via the forest isn't possible as far as I can see (see my gps track for my attempts). Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1121/comment/15365/
