No Challenge, Just Great Views
by Aidy  27 Oct 2015
Went up via the well described route along the farmer's track from the northwest. Not a challenging or high hill, but well worth it for the views, east along the River Finn for miles, north to the Derryveagh Mountains, and west and south to the rest of the Bluestacks. The views west along the Reelan River past Gaugin Mountain were particularly eye-catching. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/883/comment/18371/
