A dull top with some lovely surrounding views and walks
by ColinCallanan  21 Jun 2015
A bit of a rounded top, with no major draw other than the pleasant walk up there from the south. I don't recommend approaching from the north or West, as the going is rather unpleasant with unrelenting peat hags, heather and general marshy swampy land.

Peak-bagging in this area is not always as rewarding as you'd think it could be. These mountains look fantastic as you drive through them, but the going can get a bit rough on the way to the summits, with views obscured by unremarkable boglands and hundreds of peat hags to slow you down. But see my track for this route, and you'll discover a joyful diversion to tullyvilla lakes to vary things a bit.

I'm starting to feel that the best routes in this area actually avoid the summits altogether, so I'll set about putting together a route from a lovely forest up to the "stirring rock", then on to Tullyvilla. Coming soon, stay tuned! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/658/comment/18151/
