Easy Breesy for a 6yr old
by bertandally 17 Mar 2019
Thanks so much to sandman for the parking spot - it was ideal but the road in here is not for everyone and it might be best now to park at A (G98080 64843) and walk the road in to your starting point as it's just over a mile. The Google car has been up here but the hedges are much more overgrown since their visit and whomever was living in the caravan seem long gone so nature is starting to reclaim the road. We trekked a short distance back up the road from the parking spot and then aimed for the summit trying to avoid the wettest ground as we had our 6 year old with us. We skirted around the East and arrived more or less in the very centre of the plateau an hour after setting off. Breesy lived up to it's name and the weather was very changeable and extremely gusty at the trig. We were awarded with super views from the top, easily making out the Atlantic.

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.

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 B (G97699 63240) adjacent to a disused dwelling on the track shown on OS17 situated between hill and border .The views from the summit (C (G97664 63723)) 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.
