Splendid views from this fine summit.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  30 Aug 2021
One approach is from the south. Leave the main road at at V829 527 starA and drive up the road which curves around towards a farm. If there is a farmer present, ask permission to access the mountain through the gate at V829 528 starB, although it has previously been granted with no problem. There is sufficient room to park at the farm entrance (also previously granted) or alternatively there is parking for one car a little bit back along this side road. Go through the gate and follow a curving, rising route around the mountain to the NW, before swinging NE around V818 534 starC. The gradient is steep but quite manageable, a mixture of grass and rock underfoot. Continue in this direction for about 1.5km which will take you to the summit area. Simplest, safest return route is to retrace your steps, although you may wish to take in Glenkeel Top. For alternative route down, see that summit page.
