A mountain which has a great reward in views without requiring any great effort. Park at the Ott Car Park and approach from the Ott Track. Once you reach the wall at the col, head left and follow the wall up to the summit. From here, many peaks are accesible including Carn Mountain and Slieve Meelbeg. Alternatively you can make your way down to Loughshannagh and take in Doan, which has possibly the most spectacular views in the Mournes. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/245/comment/2633/
