First or last stop in the horseshoe
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  26 May 2015
This is often either the first or last top when completing the Mullaghanattin Horseshoe. For approach along horseshoe in anti-clockwise direction, see entries for An Cnoc Riabhach, Mullaghanattin etc. If you wish to do this in isolation, parking for a car or two may be found at V743 745 A. From here, a track leads along under a row of trees, turns left across a green field and then continues into the open countryside. Leave the track around V736 745 B and proceed NW up the grassy slope, which is mostly firm underfoot. The slope becomes quite steep after a few hundred metres and continues like this until V733 752 C, where it eases, and the final 300m to the summit is a relatively easy climb. The summit is unmarked, but is a relatively small mostly grassy area. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/213/comment/4973/
