New Comment: a beautiful little mountain route with great views
by Grumbler  9 Aug 2019
I followed Jackill advice and parked the car at W 02056 66620 A at the sharp bend after the tunnel , walking around the bend to double gates on the right hand side follow a good but steep track over the metal bridge and through the next 2 fields to the forest corner on your right. (not on OS map) just inside the forest fence there is a track that will take you up to around the 300mtr contour and runs into another track that runs north east downhill to a farm on the road before the tunnel. from here follow the fence up to spot height 625 turning right along the coll to Gullapa hill. I had thought about going on to Birdhill as there is a track below the coll between Gullapa and the Bird that will take you back to the road before the tunnel but was not sure about access permission as it is a working farm. I retraced my steps and was back at the car in four and a half hours including breaks. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/265/comment/20609/
