Part of a trio
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  30 Mar 2022
One approach is via Barraduff (see that entry's short summary for approach). Many people do this hill as part of a trio of Carns (Barraduff, Knockeirka & Killaha), although the walk is lengthy and involves many ups and downs. If you approach from Barraduff, the walk from there is a straightforward 2.5km, with the final kilometre being a fairly gentle slope up to the summit, which is marked by rocks and a wooden pole.
