A Small Hill with a View.
by sandman  24 May 2016
The hill is situated in a special area of conservation not far from the world famous Belleek Pottery factory.No problems with access as ownership is mostly commonage .I parked at G9769963240 A adjacent to a disused dwelling on the track shown on OS17 situated between hill and border .The views from the summit (G9766463723 B) which is not the trig are fantastic so a clear day is a must.As the day was sunny i spent an enjoyable afternoon exploring the area.

Much To Recommend
by Aidy  6 Oct 2015
I have to agree with sandman that this hll has great views, although hazy when I visited, and I found it a very enjoyable walk. I started from a similar point, just a bit further north on the same narrow, deeply rutted road. It is easy to pick a way up to the top, and after a dry spell, the perhaps normally boggy ground, provided a good surface. There was a lot of exposed rock, which to my inexpert eyes looked like it had been shaped and deeply scored by glacial action. Views were briliant despite the haze, particularly over the many loughs to the north, southwest to the Dartry Mountains, and southeast to Legg and the Navar viewing point across Lough Erne. 20 minutes would be enough to reach the top, and I think I will be back on a day with clearer views.
