Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  17 Oct 2023
Often done alongside Knocknagantee itself, but this Ardering Beg may be done in isolation. One starting point is V66918 71228 starA, which is the start of a trail. It is next to farm buildings but the farmer has no issue with people parking, and there is room for several cars. Follow the well-established trail as it meanders up the mountain - it is steepish in parts. At V66292 72935 starB, where the trail turns sharply right, leave trail and head NW directly up the grassy slope, ground firm and obstacle free. At V65862 73344 starC you should cross a much lesser trail - just wide enough for one person - and follow it directly west for about 200m, which will take you to the grassy highpoint.

Vandeleur Lynam? Don't think so......
by bryanmccabe  8 Jan 2024
In August 2023, I compared the elevation of this peak with that of the saddle about 300m to the east (Knocknagantee side) very crudely using Outdoor Active. The difference suggested a 12-13m prominence (two phones) - so probably not a Vandeleur Lynam. Linkback:
