Pleasant walk and suitable for children
by tmsr  2 Jun 2012
Pleasant walk from Three Rock mast area. We've accessed it from Kilmashogue car park and from Ticknock car park. The latter is more direct. although much busier with mountain bikers and dog walkers etc. Recent works around the cairn at the summit of Fairy Castle have been undertaken to protect it from erosion apparently...
