Cornassaus or Lough an Leagh?
by TommyV  31 Oct 2018
This is a very straight forward walk from a picnic area at the side of the road as mentioned by wicklore, There is a track heading South up to some masts on top of the hill. The trig point is just behind the masts. This short trek will take about 10 minutes but it's still worth bringing a snack to enjoy at the lovely picnic area at the start of the walk.
