A pretty handy walk across from Seefin with only a small amount of boggy land to be encountered on the lowest point between the two hills. The cairn is a similar size to that on Seefin and while it doesn't contain a passage, an indentation to the East hints that perhaps it did at some stage. The cairn is actually positioned away from the summit proper and it would appear this was done to make it visible from around the valley. The summit proper is a short trot across some very boggy land to the east and is marked by a triangular Military Range sign. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/92/comment/4295/
