Lough Nafooey Watcher.
by sandman 20 Mar 2022
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 ascent, well my way of ascent. By parking in a small lay-by located at K'fooy SW (L93286 59124) 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: mountainviews.ie/summit/1210/comment/18912/

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. Black Rk (L93910 59252). Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1210/comment/21322/
