Lose one 500 metre hill then find a new one?
by three5four0  28 Jun 2010
After the OSNI dropped Benbrack to 499 metres, on their new sheet 26, it is perhaps apt that on reaching the summit of Bulbin the satmap gps twitched into life and gave a reading of 500 metres. To check the reading, i backtracked slightly to stand right on the spot height, thats marked on the map. Well, I would have, but it seemed to be mostly in the small tarn, mentioned in previous postings. With both a slight rise before and after the tarn (one crowned with a large cross) giving readings of 500 metres, it would appear the OSI may have taking the reading from the tarn itself. One for future visitors to check, of course it can't be claimed as a new 500 metre hill, till a nice new osi map proclaims it as such.

Started our ascent from C354432 I (the previously mentioned holiday cottage), where there is space to park on a grass verge. Followed the track south west to a junction at C351429 J, took the left hand track and followed it up hill on a rising traverse, through a gate, and at C351414 K left the track and walked north east uphill, on a spur, to the summit. Great views of all the Inishowen peaks, particularly the Urrishills, Raghtin More and Slieve Snaght. Returned to the car by way of ascent Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/475/comment/5906/
