Easy hill, great views.

Fine hill if your looking for panoramic reward without great effort. Slieveboy's splendid isolation and steep relief above surrounding countryside definitely offers commanding views in every direction.

If you have the time, Slieve Gower 300m (not an MV summit.) , the other high point on the same ridge, 1.5km NE, is a worthy deviation. It too has super views, especially east to the coast, as the summit falls steeply beneath you.

Access is from the forest road leading NE at the rear of the car park on the Camolin side. I Dont have exact coordinates yet but an approx 1.5km walk along this gently leaning and scenic passage will bring you to a narrow track upwards off the road at a break in the forest .The summit is only a 10 min hike from here.
