Flat topped peak which is quite eroded. But its a beautiful walk up through derrymore glen on a summers day to Baurtregaum. Make your way along the ridge to Caherconree fort. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/17/comment/316/

Slightly dumpy-looking by comparison with Caherconree, but still a gorgeous spot to linger on the right sort of day. So much fantastic coastline in view. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/17/comment/2823/
