Not the most exciting, Tooreen is in the middle of an extensive range of hills. The area is a mixture of forestry and upland farming. A mast has been erected on Toreen to evaluate winspeeds for a proposed windfarm. There are plenty of windmills in the area. I drove up the farmroad just to the south and asked for permission to climb the hill. This was given somewhat reluctantly with warnings about a bull and electric fences. I was up and down in 45 minutes. A misty day limited my views. To avoid crossing farmland you could walk up through the forest from Barna (marked on the OS map 66 to the north east of Tooreen.
