A pleasant walk.

The summit of this hill can be reached by the west side by taking a country lane which begins at J576527 E. This country lane will lead you up to a small tower/pylon. From here you will see the gate which leads into the open fields where the top is near. There is a hidden trig pillar on the summit. I recommend you start this walk in Portaferry town and walk down the Loughshore road till you reach the country lane which will be on your right. BEWARE OF THE BULL!!!
