My nearest MV hill
by TommyV  14 Dec 2018
This hill is only a few kilometers over the road from my home house. However without Mountain Views website you would scarcely know it's a hill as it is situated in an area of high ground anyway so it does not feel like it is a hill of any real elevation. eamonoc's directions are bang on. The forest does limit the view to one side of the hill, but the mast can be seen all over west Clare. I can only imagine what the views are like from up there.
