New Comment: Jagged edges
by Colin Murphy  4 Oct 2021
Followed Dessie1's directions from Seefin N with some minor exceptions. If you follow the fence past the summit you will come to a rusty gate, which is much easier to cross. From here you can follow another fence towards Seefin, which takes a right-angled left turn at around R888 199 B. Continue to follow this up the hill and you will come to a spot where the fence is relatively easy to cross. Then it's a slight trudge up the last bit through the heather. The summit area is marked by a collection of large jagged boulders. On the return journey, dropped down through the heather, which was thankfully not too long, to R889 202 C and picked up a grassy trail that ended in a field, crossed this to return to the main track next to the car parking area at R89306 20345 A.
