On the way to better things...
by Colin Murphy  2 Nov 2015
Once you've ascended to Benoskee, this one's simplicity itself, involving an ascent of about 40m up a gently rising slope - although you do have to negotiate a few peat hags around the col. The hill itself is unremarkable - a big grassy mound with no summit marking. An easy bag with fine views, and little else to recommend it. Bag it, move on to the big boys to the east!
