The summit of Slieveanorra definitely isn’t a wilderness experience. For a start it has two masts on it with associated buildings and it also has two roads. From the top a metalled road leads SE, whilst a well maintained dirt track leads NE. I approached it from the main road at D144277 A (the NE side).

From the summit there is a good view of the windfarm on Slievenahanagan, some 5 or 6 km to the SW. At the summit there is a small ring of stones, overshadowed by the modern high tech structures. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/440/comment/930/
