A small top often by-passed
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  15 Oct 2013
From the N56 follow the L1845 to Letterbarra and then go north on a minor road to it's end at G8865988705 A near a farm and park a short way beyond the end of the tarred surface. Cross a locked gate and follow the good stone and gravel track initially downhill and then steeply up NE for 1.5km to G8963289826 B where a track leads off left. Follow it up to it's end at G894901 C and then head up N across the moorland to gain the ridge and the small but distinctive top some 800 metres along. The high point is marked by a small cairn G8957890901 D. Views NE are blocked by the nearby bulk of Silver Hill but Lavagh More and Croaghgorm can be seen to the E while S over Donegal Bay are the Dartrys and the mountains of SW Donegal. Distance up and back 6km. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/529/comment/5288/
