Truskmore is the highest point in County Sligo, but there seems to be some question about whether its the highest point in Leitrim too. Some take Slive Anierin (585m) near Drumshanbo as its highest point while others take Truskmore as the real high point. The O.S. map shows Truskmore's summit to be entirely in Sligo, just. There is a large cairn near the summit of Truskmore which may be Leitrim's true high point, its at G763471 A. Wonder what Leitrim's official high point actually is?! Anyway its worth traipsing over to the cairn to catch the stunning views to the east.
