Summit of the Slieveardagh Hills

If you fancy a longer walk you can start at the car park just outside Grange at S309566 starB. From here I walked clockwise round the Crag Forest Loop until I reached the Wellington Monument. I then joined the country road which led me south towards Knocknamuck. There are a number of wind turbines scattered at the top along with some small transmitters. I highly recommend you start this walk from the Grange car park as the forest was beautiful and full of wildlife ; the Wellington Monument is definitely worth a visit too.
