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 starA following the trails as per the OS map or alternatively the shortest route is via the small road at C0700615559 starB . If you intend to make a walk a trail to point C0543314882 starC exists which connects the forest trails to open hillside, a kindly local has marked this route.
