This one's really quite easy to get to. If you park at Glendine Gap it's less than 500 metres over to the summit. A boggy sheep track brings you to within 200 m of the summit. The trickiest bit will be deciding that you've actually reached anything that could be called a summit. Barcam's top is similar to Arderin or Stillbrook Hill: very difficult to find! I selected the only feature of note in the vicinity of the summit: a lone pole protruding from the bog. Some nice views of Arderin, Stillbrook, and Lough Derg and the Shannon to the west. Those wanting a bit more of a challenge could approach from the forest track, which turns off the Glendine road at S213 992 B. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/504/comment/2760/
