The only trig Pillar with a seat !
by Fergalh  25 Aug 2014
Drive onto Lettermore island, then at Lettermore village take first right. Park at space just before cottage at L89143 29114 C. Then proceed up hill to see a stunning vista. And this has the only trig pillar with a seat on all four sides ! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1372/comment/17624/

Trig-bench

As mentioned before Lettermore Hill has a pretty well fitted out trig pillar. A very pleasant quick walk to the top is worth it if you're in the area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1372/comment/17976/

Definitely one for the family.

It takes less than ten minutes to walk to the top of this little hill. For such little effort the views are spectacular. Sandman's directions are spot on. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1372/comment/20161/
