Fairly easy walk up from the Owencarrow valley road, although the long grass (chest height in places when I last walked here) and uneven ground make it seem much harder. Once onto the tops, the going is much easier, with large slabs of rock, interspersed with bog/water. You have a good chance of spotting herds of deer up here.
