Grave of Three Soldiers.
by sandman 21 Aug 2016
The summit area known as the Grave of Three Soldiers can be accessed by different routes but i decided after i noticed gates leading to open hillside to park at K'kil N (L99208 75497) beside a farm workshop and having failed to talk to anyone in the nearby houses walked uphill thru an open farm gate following tract up hill and thru an old pedestrian gate to open hillside unfortunately you have to cross two fences before you reach the summit .

Alternative access point.
by Jamessheerin 5 May 2017
Parked at Brkla (L98224 74755). At currently abandoned old farmhouse. Knocked on door but no sign of habitation at house. Go through gate for easy access to hillside. One fence to cross at A (L98553 74580). Like a lot of these small outliers in this area stunning views of surrounding countryside and mountains. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1230/comment/18909/
