Not a bad way to pass an hour or so exploring the Pullans. Park the car at where a small road branches north off the R232 - mind the soft verge. Walk north on this small road for a couple of hundred yards then turn left onto a rutted track which is marked on the OS map sheet 11. Keep going past the gate, ignore the outcrop with ugly masts to your right, and continue uphill through a second gate. The track takes you almost to the summit, which consists of a plateau-like top with a few mounds to mark the high points. Hop easily from one mound to another (careful in case of bogholes) and see if you can spot Lough Folla up top. It's more of a large pond than a lough. Headed back down the way we came as the ground was very soggy. Back driving again on the road down to Laghey within 70 minutes of starting out.
