Leave the A20 from Newtownards to Portaferry at A (J601 543) and go SW passing Lough Cowey. At a T junction go left and continue along to B'herly L (J59058 52715) where there is space to park to the side of the road on the right fronting a house. Ensure to seek permission to park here. The road is used by tractors and other agricultural machinery and space must be left to allow passage along it. Walk back NNW for about 250 metres to a lane on the left with distinctive stone pillars at the entrance and opposite a small white house B (J58979 52954). The lane leads up to a private bungalow and, at the time of writing this ss (July 2014), while the present occupiers have no objection to using it for access to the hill their permission to do so should be sought before continuing. A metal gate to the right side of the house ('Beware of Bull' sign) leads out to a couple of large grass covered fields with the high point some 600 metres along from the house. There is no marker to indicate the top on a somewhat flat grassy area (but there is a trig column just over the fence on the right) and it is left to personal choice just where it lies. A suggested co-ordinate is C (J58223 52781). There is a fine view out across Strangford Lough to the long line of the Mourne tops and Slieve Croob. Perhaps the only notable thing about this small hill is that it is the only listed MV top on the low lying Ards Peninsula, making the list by a mere metre ! It is also the most easterly top in Ireland listed by MV .

A pleasant walk.
by Wilderness 11 Oct 2016
The summit of this hill can be reached by the west side by taking a country lane which begins at D (J576 527). 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!!!
