Small hill but brilliant views
by Fergalh 24 Mar 2014
Park just after forest starts there is room for on car here (A (M24099 88719)) walk back to the three small fields beside forest and proceed to top of fields where there is a few rough tracks on short little climb to large cairn at summit really wonderful views from here.

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1297/comment/15940/

No Need to Rush.
by sandman 22 Apr 2014
Although there are fair views on the west side to the Nephin's. Croagh Patrick, Achill etc not a summit one would rush to. Situated in the middle of the Crucspullagadaun Loop Walk but not part of it .The summit (B (M24294 88597)) is marked by some old scrap metal with a small stone marker adjacent constructed from direlect stone walls .
