Views over Lough Corrib.
by sandman  16 May 2016
Park adjacent to what seems a holiday home at M0148646952 A and access the hill via the farm tract .By keeping to the left in the farm yard you will see a pedestrian gate which allows you on to the open hill ,no fences to cross and the farmer has no problem with you using his property provided you observe the country code as sheep are present. Good views of Lough Corrib and over to Mweelrea. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1183/comment/18525/
