Picture: Looking E past a Folly on Dooish erected to mark the New Millenium
A hill with one or two little surprises!
by Harry Goodman  4 Jul 2010
I climbed this small hill on 21 June 2010, parking with permission at a house with a large open front yard off the B84, some 5km S of Drumquin at H3283970608 A. To climb the hill the owner advised me to go through a farm gate just past a barn immediately S of my parking place. I walked up through the field to a gate H3270870342 B and followed a rough stoney track W uphill. This soon gave way to tussocky clumps of grass and rushes and then a raised ditch which I was able to climb on to and walk most of the way to the top to a point, near the crest, where it became less distinct and overgrown with rushes. From here I made my way across one or two fences to an ancient cairned site H3176869839 C, which is marked on OSNI Sheet 18, but is "crowned" with a recently built stone folly at least 3m tall which I later learned had been erected by a local man to mark the New Millenium using stones from the cairn !! Nearby I also came across a Dolmen with a large capstone. The top of the hill then lay a further 250m W along the fence at a junction H3155869835 D. From the top the views were extensive N to the Derryveigh Mts, W to the Bluestacks and SW to Cuilcagh. I returned by way of ascent. Linkback:
