New Comment: Part of a low level circuit
by markmjcampion  12 Nov 2020
I came at this hill from the west as part of a near 4 hour circuit along with Rinavore and Rinabeg. See my comment on Rinavore for details. Great vantage point over Lough Nafooey and there's a mighty waterfall on its east side at approx. L93910 59252 A. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1210/comment/21322/

Lough Nafooey Watcher.
by sandman  7 May 2017
Watching over Lough Nafooey from its western side this hill when viewed from the Lough is of an impressive nature but not so from way of accent , well my way of accent. By parking in a small lay-by located at L9328659124 B and walking directly across to the hill will allow you to ford the stream easily. A short and easy walk up to the summit . You can continue the walk from here and visit the near by Rinavore which can be seen in the background of the summit photo. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1210/comment/18912/
