Short Summary created by simon3, march-fixer  1 Oct 2012
Separated from Oughtmore and Spot Height 568 by a small steep col it looks down over the B40 road and over to Crockalougha. The summit is in reasonable danger of being harvested for peat!

Access it from the B40 at around H718 997 starA by way of a reasonable track virtually all the way to the summit. There is extensive peat cutting all down the north flank.

There is a very picturesque little lake hidden in the col, just west of the summit, which would make a lovely summer resting place, providing the wind was not too strong through the gap! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/586/comment/5345/
