Tiabh Mor.
by sandman  1 Jun 2016
The local name for this hill according to the locals is Tiabh Mor so who am i to disagree . The hill can be the start or finish of a fantastic coastal walk. Parking at F8908942078 starA will allow quick access to open common. The views at the summit are truly great but do be careful as one wrong step will have you discussing the advantages of flight with a seagull on the way down.
