Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  3 Oct 2013
To get to the start take the minor road L1845 off the N56 at G924787 A and go NW to Letterbarra and then N to G883869 B where a minor road turns of left following the Bluestack Way. Go along it to where the surfaced road becomes a stone and gravel track and park at G8707186956 C a short way along. Walk S along the track for some 400 metres and turn up right at G8686386852 D following the signed Bluestack Way for 1.5km to gain the ridge at G8600988023 E. Cross a step stile and turn left along the fence line to a prominent small raised mound and a large yellow topped post G85762 87877 F. Turn left, cross the fence and and head SSW over hummocky ground of peat hags and long grass for about 500 metres to the top. The high point is on a small, but prominent, sharp pointed rocky upcrop. Views are extensive SW past Binbane to the high tops of SW Donegal and back NE along the ridge to the Bluestacks. Distance up and back 5.6km.
