I followed Harry Goodman's route up from the south on the Castlewarren Road. At the trig, the gravel access road is very close, and I followed it east for about a kilometer to an another prominent rise on the hill. The work on the turbines seems to be finished, and it would now be possible to easily reach the top using the access road from the Bigwood Road, west of the summit. It was a grey, dull day when I visited, but the views are extensive, towards the Sperrins, along the Foyle, over Derry City and towards Binevenagh, although the hill is definitley dominated by all the turbines. Definitely worth the short walk if you're in the area, but I wouldn't make a journey specifically to bag it. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/877/comment/17900/
