The Steeple
Short Summary created by dino  10 Jan 2022
A short walk along forest trails to a summit known locally as "The Steeple" and crowned by a small stone tower which can be climbed via a winding stone staircase. This tower dates back to the early 19th Century and was built as an astronomical observatory by Sir Henry Stewart of Tircallen, a former estate and now a local townland.

The summit is fairly clear with good views on a clear day towards the Bluestacks and Barnesmore Gap and north to Errigal and Muckish.

The summit can be accessed from East or West with the eastern approach being the shortest (2km round trip) and the western being the steepest (6km trip). A great option for families and children with picnic benches beside the tower. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1263/comment/15507/
