In Praise Of A Minor Hill
by Aidy  1 Mar 2015
I've already commented on Browns Hill so won't go into details of routes etc here. Instead I just wanted to highlight what a great hill this is when weather conditions make getting to larger mountains difficult. During heavy snow in January I was able to access it from the N15 when minor roads would have been impassable. It is small enough to manage in difficult weather, but large enough to make a good walk, with some difficult terrain to get across on the way, and fairly steep sides. On this visit the rest of the Bluestacks looked magnificent in their Winter covering, and all this from a little visited hill in one of the quietest ranges in the country! We're very lucky in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/464/comment/17865/
