Small hill with great views
Short Summary created by thomas_g,  29 May 2017
Gortnagan Beg might be diminutive in stature but has fine views and some steep ground.
The best approach is from the NE where there is a stile on the roadside. Parking is scarce so the best option is to park outside Cappanalea and walk up the road.
There are access issues with respect to the land around Loughancummeen, so while it's tempting to go west from Gortnagan Beg and circuit the lake, this should be avoided, a descent route that skirts the west side of Lough Cappananlea is best.
