Flat Top
by paddyhillsbagger  15 Feb 2014
Was a little disappointed when I got to the flattish top of Cumber Hill and looked around for signs of a Hill Fort which I failed to find. There were a series of ditches which could have been the earthworks but no signs of stones. I did find 2 deer happily chewing on the heather and a tree at the cross roads of fences which serves as a suitable summit point. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1124/comment/15856/
