Parked in place referred to by john_desmond. From there it's a twenty minute walk up the Old Kenmare-Killarney road to the place marked on most maps as 'the Windy Gap' (though some maps like the one on this site place that nearer to Foardal, higher on the west side as one continues on that road). Then went left, but think I might have stayed too near the east side as found the going quite steep and seemed to be doing a fair bit of clambering. Took about 30-40 minutes to get to the trig point, once one leaves the road. Views from the top are stunning, down the Kenmare Bay and across to the Cahas, across the Glas Loughs to Foardal (the 'other' Windy Gap) with the Reeks behind, over to Knockrower. Going down was tricky enough, quite wet, so took it easy, but about 15-20 mins to come down. Well worth it for the scenery. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/348/comment/3593/
