Sanctuary.

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 F8857521088 A 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 F8915220260 B. 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.
