Climbed Pigeon from Slievnaman road, on a traverse of the hills to Rostrevor, on Saturday (19-7-08). Saw no one on this hill bar , strangely, a large flock of pigeons. Perhaps there is some truth in its name. Continued onto Wee Slievemoughan.

Note on the Twin summits heights, the new Harvey map - when final published - should settle which summit is higher. As they are to undertake a full resurvey of the area. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/387/comment/3235/
