Hmmmm, is this the summit?
Short Summary created by Conor74  30 Jun 2014
Parked at Barley Cove, straightforward walk from the highest point of the road as it sweeps around the bay, a couple of fences to cross. Choice of 2 or 3 outcrops as summit, one has a small cairn. Great views across Crookhaven Harbour and all of the SW coast.

The OSI notes that this and nearby Arduslough (which does not appear on mv) both have a height of 164 metres, so may have to be checked to ascertain which is the actual summit and which is a "mere" spot height. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1333/comment/15577/

Small but worth the effort if sunny !
by Fergalh  15 Oct 2020
Parked at 770 251 starA and crossed fence and made my way to the top on very wet windy and misty day in July. The land slopes upwards to the obvious summit. Must be good view on another day but I saw very little. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1333/comment/20922/
