New Comment: Hill with a tower on top
by Wilderness  Mon 16 Apr
The hill on its own is 160 meters high and the tower is 40 meters high. The tower is closed during the winter months.
The hill can be climbed from the car park just below the Golf Clubhouse at J475723 A ; you do not have very much climbing to do from here. If you want a longer walk/climb , you can start at the Killynether forest car park which is lower down on the southwest side of the hill at: J473719 B. The south and north quarries are worth visiting to; especially the south! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1489/comment/19898/
