Hill with a tower on top
by Wilderness  3 Sep 2018
The hill on its own is 160 meters high and the tower which sits on top of the hill is 40 meters high which will bring you up to 200 meters above sea level. The tower can be accessed and climbed during the spring and summer months from Thursday to Sunday. Entry into the tower was always free of charge but unfortunately that has now changed.

The hill can be climbed from the car park just below the Golf Clubhouse at J475723 A ; you do not have very much walking to do from here to the top.
If you want a longer walk , you can start at the Killynether forest car park which is lower down on the southwest side of the hill at: J473719 B. The north and south quarries are also worth visiting ; especially the south quarry! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1489/comment/19898/
