This small hill to the East of Mweelin is very easy to reach. There is plenty of space for parking on the main public road at W142 717 A. Don't go over the gate as you'll just have to cross a barbed wire fence again. Just walk SE on the public road for about 30 metres and walk straight into a boggy field. Head towards the corner and carry on straight up the hill. You'll have to negotiate a few fences but there are obvious low points to get over if you look. There are a number of potential summits but one is obvious at W14917 71786 B. Nothing special, just a grassy outcrop..............There are some excellent views from the Paps, Mangerton and Crohane in Kerry to Nowen, Sheehy More and others in West Cork. Mweelin to the West does however obscure the views a bit in that direction. While the views are nice, much the same and a bit more can be seen from Mweelin accross the way. Overall, it's an easy walk but given a choice, I'd do Mweelin. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/728/comment/3156/
