A fair share of obstacles
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  27 Aug 2019
Park at the Wicklow Gap. Take the more westerly of the two access roads to Turlough Hill reservoir. Continue up this steepish, tarred road for 1.5km to T 06590 99228 A, which will bring you above Fair Mountain, lying 1.1km to NW. Leave road and descend to col, losing about 50-70m elevation. The terrain for the crossing to the top is quite treacherous, and you will have to negotiate some forestry, extremely uneven ground, long heather and long grass, peat hags and even in summer tends to be squelchy underfoot. The summit is a distinctive small mound of turf rising up from a broad heathery area, and topped by some rocks. Panoramic views. Return journey 1.45 minutes.

Nice walk, amidst pleasant Mt scenery.
by eamonoc  27 Jun 2015
Climbed Today, 27/6/2014. Started at Carpark Wicklow Gap O 07458 00096 B, followed the access road towards Turlough Hill reservoir to T 06590 99228 A, then headed downhill due west for 1.1km to O 05999 00169 C the fairly obvious high point with a little stone mound indicating this. Fantastic views in all directions. Day was good so continued onto Tomaneena, last time here was about 10yrs ago. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1401/comment/18165/

Reflection on a mountain
by Colin Murphy  27 Aug 2019
Although the approach to Fair Mountain is anything but fair underfoot, it has the saving grace of splendid views and even has a couple of ponds to the south, not large enough to merit the term 'lough', but adding to the overall scenic nature of the area. This one nicely reflects to rising bulk of Tonelagee to the NE. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1401/comment/20637/

Nice walk
by ewen  3 Jan 2017
Did this on 3/01/17 starting at Wicklow gap car park and heading up the Turlough access road to 06590 99228 A . From there it was a quick walk to the top. The bealach between the two hills was frozen but I can see it being very boggy after rain. Returned to the road slightly further North and lower down at 06819970 D after heading for the edge of some forestry below the road. From there I returned to thecar park.
