Which Side.
by sandman  14 Aug 2017
On approach from the coastal side this hill and ridge looks impressive but from the road on the Muckish side it looks a non entity. Access is via the track leading up to the old TV masts the ruins of which dot the summit area located at B9939232022 A or you can ascend via a farm gate where there is parking for one vehicle at B9926731824 B which is the quick route. Because of the ruins located at the summit area the 360 degree view is compromised but what a view across to Muckish . Linkback:
