With a name like a 70's style tartan gang member - on map osi 2 - and no comments to boot, this hill was worth a visit!

The minor road to the north of the hill offers little in the way of parking, giving its narrow nature. However, a short distance down the track, which leaves the minor road at 243315 A, there is enough space for one car, just get guided in as there is some masonry rubble to avoid, and not block this access track.

Follow this track up hill (the barbed wire fence across the track is merely a gate and can be unhooked to gain access), to where it ends just between point 334 and another ring contour. From here there is a faint sheep track which traverses round to the re-entrant below the summit and another top (better seen from the actual summit), from where a short climb over recently burnt ground, leads to the top. Good views again, with only a newly construct wind farm on the east & south east side of the hill spoiling the views in that direction. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/891/comment/4628/
