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.
