Afternoon stroll

I left my car in Dunloy village. As I walked up Mallaboy Lane to the last farm house there was a yellow warning sign: BEWARE OF THE GUARD DOG and CCTV. I proceeded past the house with caution and never saw the dog or anyone else.

It wasn't long before I got to the top which now has a number of wind turbines scattered around the hill.
There is a small cave at the bottom of the cliff at D00251775 starM , its worth a visit along with Lough Nacroon.

On my way back down passing the farm house I met the lady who lived there along with her black Labrador which I'm guessing is the so called guard dog. The lady was friendly enough and she didn't seem to mind that I was walking on the hill. The dog was uninterested.
Just beware that there is a warning sign of a guard dog on that location!!!! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1272/comment/20062/
