I have visited this place: NO (You need to be a logged-in member to change this.)

Longitude: -10.338891, Latitude: 52.160466 , Easting: 39999, Northing: 103484 Prominence: 263m,  Isolation: 3.6km,   Has trig pillar
ITM: 439984 603539,   GPS IDs, 6 char: Lateve, 10 char: Lateeve
Bedrock type: Cross-bedded sandstone, (Coumeenoole Sandstone Formation)

The element leataoibh appears in the name of three townlands ranged along the northern slopes of this hill. No name is recorded for the hill by An Seabhac, but since the townland names are clearly topographical in origin, it seems reasonable to take Leataoibh as the name of the hill itself.   Leataoibh is the third highest hill in the Dingle West area and the 1111th highest in Ireland.

MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Leataoibh in area Dingle West, Ireland
Picture: Summit of Lateeve, looking SW

One place to start is from around Q389 018 A, on a waymarked way which opens onto a rough field leading to the open moorland of the hill. Climb to the ridge, walk along the ridge NE for around 1.6km and you will reach the summit which has a trig pillar.

The picture we took does not do justice to the tremendous 360 degree panorama from the top which encompasses both north and south sides of the Dingle peninsula, Brandon, Eagle Mountain and the smaller hills. The picture looks SW with the dark Lateeve ridge to the left and on the central skyline Eagle Mountain with Coaghmartin to its right.

A great ridge. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/934/comment/4318/
