Great Carlingford views from a so-so top
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  8 Oct 2018
There is enough space to park one car at 100 167 A, just on the edge of a wood around a sharp u-bend. Proceed north for 100m before turning NE up a gentle slope, although the terrain is treacherous - long heather, very uneven ground cut through with lots of trenches - it's a real slog. At 103 170 B descend to the north to a col of sorts and then continue for about 700m up a gentle slope, and thankfully the terrain becomes easier to traverse. There is a false summit first, and then the actual high point about 200m beyond that, marked by a cairn. The summit area is littered with boulders and is quite interesting, but the mountain is nothing to write home about, although the views over Carlingford Lough are quite spectacular. 1 hour return trip in total.
