Fine Carn with great views.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  20 May 2022
There are a couple of possible starting points to this hill. There is room for one (two at a squeeze) car at G37605 16401 starA beside a faded signpost. From here proceed south for about 250m through rough heather/reeds before turning SW up the grassy/steepish slope next to a small stream for 1.5km. The summit is a broadest area marked with a large cairn surrounding a trig pillar. Fine views in all directions.
An alternative if the first parking spot is taken is to proceed NW along the road for approx 800m to a second parking spot at G37051 17039 starB. From there head SW, again through heather initially then shortish grass & rocks up a steep but manageable incline passing between Lough Alone & another tiny pond to attain the summit. Up and down allow 1.5 hours. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/753/comment/5512/
