Views reward a hard slog up
by csd  26 Sep 2010
Seven years after getting close, I finally made it to the summit of Cnoc na hUilleann. I followed the rough track that starts below the cottage, but rather than heading for Mám Ochóige I cut directly up to the summit at the start of the forest you can see in my other comment. It's a brutal slog straight up, with a small bit of scrambling required, but the views are well worth it. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/260/comment/6113/
