Second Highest Summit of Meath!
Short Summary created by Trailtrekker  11 Jan 2014
Beside two bungalows there is room to park one, maybe two cars, just off the road at N 82454 91663 A without blocking gate. Cross gate or low fence on to farm track, all of 125 metres to summit trig at N82538 91749 B. Good views of the Cooley and Gullion hills to the north east, views to the south west are blocked by trees. The neighbouring hill which appears to have evidence of a motte or ringfort is more aesthetically pleasing and despite it's slightly lower elevation was no doubt chosen for it's better views of the surrounding lands. This is a hill to tick off a list on your way somewhere else. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1326/comment/15570/

Following Trailtrekker`s advice and directions. I was on my way back from somewhere north passed through Kingscourt and took a left onto the L3527 after about 10 mins on this road as it gradually rose to it`s highest point I noticed the two bungalows and parked just opposite a metal farm gate Point (A) the trig point is visible from here . Then the walk started in earnest! all 234mts of it. Total time taken from car to car 1 min 30 secs. Despite the arduous trip the views towards the Cooleys and Slieve Gullion were worth the effort.
