Summit on heathery 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.
Usually this summit will be done with Beann Bhán and possibly Beendarrig. The summit is on a ridge with good views in every direction. Lough Acoose is visible to the north and Cloon Lough to the SW.
One member has remarked on the presence of bulls in the area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/613/comment/5372/
