Boulder topped spur overlooking Derryveagh Valley
Short Summary created by simon3, march-fixer  4 Oct 2012
The smallest of the hills at the NE end of the Derryveagh Range, gathered close by to the east of Dooish, with commanding views north, east and south.

It can be reached easily from the R251 via Saggartnadooish. There are a number of spots along here, like B96925 21779 A , to safely park a number of cars just off-road. The lower reaches of this approach can be quite boggy. There is a handy access track B98056 22602 B heading straight for Saggartnadooish and the peat workings which will bring you some of the way. The return trip should not take more than 2 hours.

The general area is untrammelled and exists in splendid isolation. Nothing seems to have changed here since the Ice Age, as evidenced by the enormous boulder deposited on the crown which, due to it's height, forms a most unusual, if not unique, summit. Its height was established with a surveying instrument. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/548/comment/6341/
