Easy of access, great of views.
Short Summary created by simon3,  6 Jul 2012
One easy way to get up this starts from the south on the road at L91989 69717 A. Follow the Western Way for which a variant (as of 2012) leaves the road at this point, going NW. You will come upon Western Way signs which should be followed until you reach the col at around L 914711 B Head NE to the summit which has a small cairn. See Track 1860.

The view from here has to be rated as one of the most expansive in Ireland, including Nepin, the complete ridge of the Croagh Patricks, the Nephinbegs, the Corraun and Achill groups, Clare Island, the east end of the Sheefrys, the Devilsmother Ridge, the intricate spurs of the Ben Gorms, Knocklaur and some of the ten corries of Maumtrasna.

Be aware that Western Way posts are fairly far apart and might not be visible in mist so independent means of navigation are essential. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/432/comment/5191/
