Climbed this lovely small hill as part of a Clare Island traverse taking in the Signal Tower, Knockmore and finishing off with this top. At L69125 855721 starA I left the small road and headed across ground East up the short grassy slopes to a small collection of stones. Wonderful panoramic views. I proceeded back down a steeper slope to the harbour and rejoined a path at L70740 85526 starB. There are walking guides and Clare Island maps in the tourist centre.
