Tawny Rower looks ruggedly impressive from the village of Drummin, but becomes more mundane when viewed from the start of the walk, just south of Sheefry Bridge where the Western Way crosses the road (room for 1 car).
Proceeding as per Gerrym's description (which just manages to squeeze onto OS map 37) got up to the summit plateau which could provide bafflement and uncertainty in mist. A ridge at the northern end is where you'll find the small pile of stones denoting the highest point.
Fab views including Partrys, Mweelrea and Croagh Patrick to name but a few. Descended west, crossing a minor summit to the col with Tievnabinnia East. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/432/comment/1933/
