Not so Famous

Kinknock Hill may not be as well known as its famous neighbours but its location allows for some great views.You have a choice of numerous routes to the summit by parking at the wood entrance L8363681110 A you can reach the summit L8439680672 B with no access issues but be aware this is a slog in parts thru high heather.Alternatively thru private land crossing where the fence is damaged adjacent to a holiday home L8480780805 C ,parking is also scarce on this narrow lane.
