Picture: 100th local top!
 
A century of windmills?
by paddyhillsbagger  16 Jul 2012
Finally managed to bag my 100th local top last weekend! By coincidence my 1st local top was Keeper Hill, visible to the North from this summit, back in 2007 when I was doing (and still to complete) the 2000 footers in Paddy Dillons book and was blissfully unaware of the joys of all the lower tops. I climbed this top from the South near the abandoned school described by jackill. It was an easy climb up a zig-zag path passed some curious cows which along with wind turbines seem to be a common feature of many Shannon tops.
