Fine Carn with great views.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  29 Aug 2022
One approach is from the Letterkeen trailhead to the NE at F96882 05574 starA, where there is ample parking. Follow the Bangor Trail to F95424 06040 starB and then turn SW across the peatland. The slope is gentle at first but eventually becomes steeper as you ascend to the col between Tirkslieve and the unnamed hill to the NW. The slope is mostly heather and grass, but fairly easy underfoot. When you reach the broad summit area turn almost directly south - there is a fence to follow that leads almost to the summit. You will reach the summit after about 600m, and which is marked by a cairn. Return via the same route. Allow about 2.5 hours up and down. Linkback:
