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 M17798 33146 starC. 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: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1296/comment/23906/
