Colin Murphy on Nowen Hill SW Top, 2008

After taking the coniferous track up to Nowen and having viewed its summit's charming pylons and masts, we set off south west along the edge of the woods - experiencing similar conditions to John Desmond - extremely boggy going - we eventually reached Nowen SW Top after about 45 minutes. Its summit is marked by a rapidly decaying trig pillar. Nice if not spectacular views from top and at least it didn't reverberate with the hum of electricity like its bigger brother. Rather than retrace our steps we headed in a north easterly direction and eventually found a way back on to the Nowen track through the horrible conifers. Total round trip 2 hours 45 minutes, slowed considerably by bogginess and trees. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/437/comment/3113/
