Heathery summit on broad ridge overlooking Lough Acoose.
Short Summary created by simon3  17 Jan 2022
To the north: It is possible to start from around V76112 83996 starA, which is on a road going past Lough Acoose.
From the south, start at around V77919 81491 starB in the Bridia Valley using the Kerry Way via Beendarrig to gain higher ground.
Expect heathery rough ground on all sides.
The views here are much the same as with nearby Beann Dubh with which it will usually be walked. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/577/comment/5336/
