Where's the summit?
Short Summary created by mcrtchly  18 May 2014
MV shows the summit lies to the south of the forestry but inspection of the contours and a visual inspection shows that it lies within the forestry. Park by a forest entrance at S 3934 3497 starA. Follow track for 170m to a fork and take the left branch. Continue for another 400m to where a narrow forest break can be seen on the left (S 3878 3508 starB). Follow this for about 90m to the highest point along the break. This is probably the summit but the forest on either side is so dense that it impossible to discern otherwise. No views.

Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland
by Pepe  28 Feb 2022
According to the notice-board at 'A', this may also be known as Killamery Hill - a local I approached had clearly never heard of it called Faranaree before.
Followed mcrtchly's instructions from 'A'. From here ten or twelve minutes to the summit area. Set out after a fresh fall of snow. Time for the wellies: wonderful winter walking conditions Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1167/comment/23423/
