oldsoldier on Brandon Hill, 2010
by oldsoldier  25 Jan 2010
Brandon Hill is surely a giant of a mountain with respect to what can be seen from its summit, an unhindered view for 360 degrees. I parked my car at a fabulous white house with a very ornate brick gateway on the R705 at a point called Carrickanoran. The house entrance and the forestry entrance are side by side and can be easily missed. I parked my car here and followed the waymarked way all the way to the summit.( A lovely beginners walk). Sometimes a looped walk marker, sometimes a red arrow, and sometimes a B/W stone set in a small marker. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/423/comment/4372/
