Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  22 Aug 2013
Leave the R253 at G968963 A and take a minor road going S and then SW to G9372493563 B some 5km along. Parking for several cars. Cross the road and walk N up a track which forms part of the Slina Finne waymarked way. Although the track is at times quite indistinct on the ground make for the col up ahead between Lacroagh and Croveenananta. On reaching G9358894677 C at the col turn right and climb up E initially crossing a lower top G9394694734 D before continuing on for another 150 metres to the ummarked grass coverd high point G9414294713 E. Return by way of ascent or drop down around the SW flank of the hill to G9366494239 F to pick up the outward track of the Sli na Finne and go left back to the start.
