Easy Access On Wind Farm Road
by Aidy  25 Apr 2016
The beauty of small hills like this is that even if they're not spectacular, they take little time or effort, and in cases like this are made even easier by wind farm access roads. The road here took me almost to the top, with only a short stretch of heather and grass to negotiate. I've done several small hills in Tyrone, Fermanagh, Derry and Donegal over the last few weeks as part of my local 100, and this was one of the better ones, with fairly good views around the neighbouring hills and down over Lough Swilly to Inishowen.
