Wildness Makes Up For Lack Of Height
by Aidy  20 May 2016
My third summit of four after Croveenananta and Lacroagh, and probably the best of the three for views, with similar views to the rest around the Bluestacks, but with new vistas also opening up to the west coast. It was more difficult getting here than I had thought from the map, due to some very boggy areas and deep heathery ground. But still not too hard, and the whole circuit is relatively short. Definitely worth the effort, and wilder than its modest height might suggest. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/780/comment/18539/
