Short Summary created by aidand  13 Dec 2019
Park at Brandon Point, cross the stile and head up hill. Pass by the an old coast-watchers hut and continue uphill to the summit. Wonderful views out over the sea. Very popular with bird-watchers. Dolphins are often seen in this area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/5109/comment/20698/
