Fine Arderin Beg with spectacular views.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  5 Sep 2022
Often done alongside Knocknagantee itself, but this Ardering Beg may be done in isolation. One starting point is V66918 71228 starA, which is the start of a trail. It is next to farm buildings but the farmer has no issue with people parking, and there is room for several cars. Follow the well-established trail as it meanders up the mountain - it is steepish in parts. At V66292 72935 starB, where the trail turns sharply right, leave trail and head NW directly up the grassy slope, ground firm and obstacle free. At V65862 73344 starC you should cross a much lesser trail - just wide enough for one person - and follow it directly west for about 1.5km, crossing one substantial rise before the top comes into view. The summit is an elevated grassy area bump about 100m long, with the high point at the eastern end, marked by a stone and toppled post. Allow 3 hours minimum up and down.
