I went to the top of this hill on the same day as several others, as from the Evish Road on its southern slopes, it is only 500 metres or so to the top across easy ground. There is a trig pillar at the top with a hole in the side where the flush bracket has been removed, and the top bracket has probably been removed too. In its place a metal cross has been cemented into position. Views from the top are expansive. Immediately below on the west, you have a birds eye view down over Strabane. North there are views along the Foyle and the rolling countryside on its banks. South and east are the rest of the Sperrins. Well worth the visit.
