Great views, straightforward walk
by skhg  13 Jul 2017
We parked at the small car park at R81980 18545 A and over Benard before following the forest tracks to R 83300 20170 B and R83795 20221 C. Just above that is an interesting rocky area with various well-constructed cairns. There's a very easy walk up along the ridge to the summit, with only a few mildly boggy sections. The Galtees dominate the scene to the east, and several other ranges are visible to the E, SE and SW. Well worth it for a day out and perfectly accessible other than one fence-hop to get out of the forest. Unfortunately there was no sign of the visitors book mentioned by Harry Goodman, although we did search a bit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/54/comment/19604/

Sign the Book
by SpiritOf84  6 Jun 2016
Climbed Temple Hill last month. Found the "sign in" book tucked away between rocks in the cairn. Someone is obviously keeping track of it as it currently takes the form of a 2016 diary. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/54/comment/18569/

Temple Hill Reached the summit today 7.1.09 walking conditions ideal. Two hours from entrance to Combaun to top. Please note you can sign a book on the summit. Go into the little shelter on the centre of the cairn and you should see it looking in a southerly direction.Ben Aird Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/54/comment/3515/
