Tully Mountain is sufficiently detached from the Twelve Bens to offer fine views of the range as a whole, as well as coastal views including Inishbofin, Inishturk, Clare Island and Achill. Also known as Letter Hill [TR]. Walks: a route for this peak is described in New Irish Walk Guides by Tony Whilde and Patrick Simms, p. 44.   Tully Mountain is the 1040th highest place in Ireland.

Went up this delightful little hill this morning solo, as the better half went to do Diamond Hill (again!) after we did it yesterday. Now that's a compliment to a hill if I ever saw one. Anyway, cutting a long story short I started at the Quayside mentioned by scapania. Then I followed the road westwards and after the quarry entrance watched to my right to find the stile he mentions. Not seeing it I ploughed upwards to a fence a little off the road and walked along the fence to the stile. Crossing this I realised the bracken ran out a little furter along and also saw a couple more stiles at intervals, so it appears this is a hill with no access issues indeed. Anyway the rest of the story is rather mundane, it's really just a matter of going upwards along the ridge until you can go upwards no more, and you have reached the trig point. Time up: 50 minutes and return 35 minutes. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/893/comment/5866/
