Access?
by paddyhillsbagger  9 Mar 2014
One of the potential problems with the new list of Binnions is access. Black Hill is only really approachable via a working farm and it's field tracks. I asked at the farmhouse near S161 825 starA and was granted permission to walk to the communication mast and trig on the summit, but just how many visitors will the farmer suffer? The track up starts behind the cow sheds and leads up to a boggy plateau giving fine views across the M7 to the Slieve Blooms as well as the controversial Monaincha Wind Farm. There are plans for many more of these wind farms in the Midlands and a growing campaign against them. There are also fine views over to the Devilsbit range. Only a hill for list tickers.
