Nice stroll with rewarding views
by David-Guenot  12 Jan 2014
Climbed this small hill on 14. June 2013. There is a small abandoned white farmhouse just alongside he minor road S of the summit, somewhere around B873316 C, and room for one car nearby. From there it is a quick, easy ascent on open ground up to the flat area which can be seen on the picture; then a short stroll eastbound through boggy, uneven terrain (old turf cuttings I believe) will take you to a winding road track. Follow it for one or two hundred metres until you see a small track to your right -which can be seen to the right of the cross on the picture- that will lead you straight to the summit and its wooden cross. As I made it to the top, the wind had suddenly grown stronger and the bit of rain that had started falling had almost turned into hail, with the mist coming down too, so I could not really enjoy the coastal scenery to the N, which must be great on a clearer day. And as usual, it cleared up just after I left the summit ! Was able to enjoy nice views during the ascent and descent though, towards Cnoc Fola to the W, Taobh an Leithid to the S and the Seven Sisters to the SE, including the almost perfect triangle shape of mighty Errigal.
A friend of mine who lives in the area had advised me to climb one of the lanes starting N of the hill from Min Larach, but as I could not define which lanes were private or not, I decided to start from the SW and it happened to be a good idea (no fence nor gate to cross). He also told me there was an annual local pilgrimage/procession up to the cross, but I cannot remember which part of the year it takes place. I will update this comment as soon as I get the answer (has anyone heard about it ?).
Not much to say about the climbing, not as prominent as Cnoc Fola, but a short, easy walk offering rewarding views for such a low summit !! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1343/comment/15773/
