A quick up-and-down with nice views.
by David-Guenot  3 Oct 2015
Not much space for a car alongside the road, so I parked near a junction with a dead end at C17024075 B, leaving enough room for other vehicles to pass. From there, I headed straight uphill, crossing a track en-route. The only obstacle is a stonewall, but I quickly found a breach and carefully crossed it, too. From there it is a steep but short pull up to the top, following the faint sheeptracks that zigzag through the heather. On top, you will find the ruins of a stone fort and will enjoy some nice views over Lurgacloughan Bay, Mulroy Bay and the Knockalla ridge to the E and SE, Ballyhiernan Bay to the N, the N end of Rosguill and Cnoc na Slea to the W, and the Derryveaghs and Loughsalt Mountain to the S and SW. I came down the same way. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1349/comment/18344/
