Picture: High point with Bohilebreaga visible in distance.
 
A simple, gentle ascent, track all the way.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  24 Apr 2023
Parking for 1 or 2 cars at C7863 0128 starA. Follow the gently rising track to the NW for about 800m, where it turns sharply to the SW for another 500m. It then turns again to the SSE, before curving around towards the hill’s highpoint, which is about 50m to the west of the track – a couple of stones atop a grassy mound. Up and down in 40 minutes.
