Fine top in its own right
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  29 Mar 2014
Usually done in conjunction with Slieve League, although it is a rewarding and spectacular ascent in itself. Park at the upper car park at G55834 75690 A (space only for a few cars and often full in summer). Alternatively park at large lower car park at G57130 75560 B and walk the 1.5km to upper car park. The route is simple although quite steep. Follow the steps/track in an easterly direction, which curves around to the north along the coastline., and then to the NW. It is mostly firm underfoot but in places there is a large amount of walker damage. You should reach the summit in under an hour. It is unmarked and identified only by a small grassy, heathery area with a single rock embedded in the earth. The views are tremendous. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/673/comment/5432/
