A Small Mountain.
by sandman  8 Jun 2015
Brown Mountain is situated close to the village of Church Hill and overlooks Lough Gartan but unfortunately due to the forest , views are restricted from the summit the best views are had from the summit of Crockraw. Access is via the forest entrance at C0689416239 A following the trails as per the OS map or alternatively the shortest route is via the small road at C0700615559 B . If you intend to make a walk a trail to point C0543314882 C exists which connects the forest trails to open hillside, a kindly local has marked this route.
