Short Summary created by jackill  11 Dec 2012
Park at W1675 5065 A , which is the gated entrance road to the windfarm, room for 4 cars. Follow the windfarm road uphill passing through another gate near the top of the hill. the summit is on the higher ground to the east of the windmills.

One for turbine lovers.

Parked at W1675 5065 A (lots of room for cars). Followed the wind farm road to the summit, it's hardcore stone most of the way up, which is fairly unpleasant for us Irish walkers who are used to the springy carpet of bog that we find on many of our mountains.
There is a gate in the fence behind the eastmost turbine, from there it's a 200m wade to the flat, boggy summit. The views north towards Nowen Hill are nice enough, while west and south are marked by wind turbines. 5km, about an hour up and down. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/896/comment/6680/
