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. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1333/comment/15577/
