Small top, big views.

I started from the North at A (M17631 34375). Asked a local farmer who informed me hill was commonage and named Oldtown Hill. No problem with access but wet underfoot. Lovely sweeping views of Lough Corrib, Galway Bay and the Burren beyond. Linkback:

Unpleasant Experience
by TommyV 16 Apr 2023
I parked at the South side of this hill a little bit further down the road from the spot mentioned by Fergalh. I followed a road past a few houses and a farm that leads to a gate out onto the hill at B (M17798 33146). There was a beware of the bull sign on the gate but when you see the terrain you would wonder if any cattle could survive in it. Perhaps the sign is a deterrent to anybody stupid enough to want to bag this hill. A slog through some wet, boggy, heathery ground for about a kilometre will have you to the top. I went down a different way to make a bit of a loop of the walk but I wouldn't recommend this. All in all a very forgettable experience. Linkback:
