Approach from Military Road.
by Colin Murphy  7 May 2021
I started at a forest entrance at O104 054 B (parking for several cars) and proceeded up that track to the N of Carrigshouk for about 100m before continuing NW along the grassy terrain, following the lower contours of Carrigshouk and Mullaghcleevaun E before ascending to the col at O090 080 C, then making the final ascent to the NE up the gently sloping 60m to the rounded top of Duff Hill. 1.5 hours from car. Whatever setting I'd accidentally knocked my camera on to, it produced this distinctly 70's looking shot of the cairn and summit of Duff Hill.
