The summit of this hill is surrounded by a forestry the type of trees you do not wish to encounter so when the mountain sheep manage to find there way in the farmer has no choice but to await there return. Deciding to access the hill via Briska i asked permission from a farmer at A (F88575 21088) to allow me access to the open hillside thru his property. The farmer had no problem even giving me a pointer to where best get thru the trees at B (F89152 20260). His neighbor is a bit more restrictive and is located at the end of the tract shown on the OS map. Having made your way thru you will find a grassy summit with good view of Slieve Carr. Linkback:

An adventurous walk.
by Wilderness 21 Apr 2022
I accessed this hill coming from Knocklettercuss. The terrain in-between the two hills was mostly dry and easy going.
The narrow line of forest I had to go through to get to the top of Sheean was no bother to walk through as the trees here were sparse with plenty of gaps. C (F895 198) The top is relatively flat and has no cairn. The biggest mistake I made was on my decent straight towards Briska were I tried to go through the forest at D (F893 205). There is a tempting gap here going in a northeasterly direction towards the rivers and track , but the trees only get denser the further down you go. At times I had to get down on my hands and knees and crawl my way through. Eventually I saw light through the trees and reached the narrow river tributary ,very close to where it joins the much larger Owenmore river. I then followed the track out. Linkback:
