Short Summary created by scapania  17 Oct 2010
Park at the small carpark at the end of the minor road at Tiduff, above Brandon Creek (Q433 124 A) and follow the Dingle Way east, following the old track that served the ill-fated signal tower on the Col between Masatiompan and Piaras Mór.

This track climbs gradually to a shoulder at about 450m, from where a steep drop to the Atlantic far below is revealed. From here follow the boggy path up to the col, where it's well worth locating the ogham stone, then follow the fence up to the left until you reach the summit cairn. Take time to enjoy your perch above the endless blue Atlantic before reluctantly heading back. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/66/comment/4826/
