Geo on Kings Mountain, 2009
by Geo  31 May 2009
On Tuesday 26th May after visiting Benbulbin and her cliffs we returned along the eastern edge of the plateau to the little hill marked on the OSI sheet 16 as a ring contour of 500m at G700454 H. from here looking South, King's Mountain stood up on our line of vision across rough bog punctuated by peat hags. We set off and braved a short stinging Atlantic squall which beset us en route, thankfully the raingear was already on, unlike a couple we met, who were trying to get weatherproofed in the lee of a peat hag as the wind tried to tear the clothes out of their hands. We reached the top easily and I took a GPS reading of G70328 44183 I from the highest point of the hill. The coordinates quoted here for the top appear to be those of the spot height of 459m 500m or so north. Perhaps I am wrong but the map appears to agree better with what my GPS told me! Anyway its a lovely viewpoint south over Sligo town and further. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/573/comment/3788/
