Combined a jaunt up Corn Hill with a trip to Mullaghmeen yesterday to take in 2 county high-points in one day. Took the children along and Corn Hill provides a short but pleasant walk with the summit accessible via a small service road that lies beyond a locked gate. The hill suffers visually in a number of ways, totally dominated by the huge RTE mast and it's service buildings along with the myriad of stay wires which stretch out in all directions on the summit. Views are limited by the forestry plantation at the top sections of the hill - one man I met informed me that he saw the trees as an affront to the hill and that prior to their planting, you could see nine counties from the trig pillar. The trig pillar is located down a path to the right of the mast and sits atop a grass-covered cairn. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/3417/

Family outing to the highest point in Longford

I turned my parents into County Toppers yesterday as we took a pleasant stroll up Corn Hill, with my son and Ginger (momentarily probably the highest dog in the midlands) completing the party. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/5955/

"You mean Cairn Hill", said my friend's 80-year-old mother, Longford born and bred, when I said we were going to climb this. The Cairn Hill is also the name of a pub in Drumlish. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/4059/

-A break in the weather
by paddyobpc  24 Jan 2017
Walk Date: 06 Jun 2016. As we drove away from Cuilcagh it was still raining and Dillon(dillonkdy), my sister Helen and I were hoping it would stop by the time we travelled to the start of Longford’s CHP, Corn Hill. It was a little over an hour away with a stop for a bit of food and sure enough the weather cleared up before we got to the start of the walk. Considering this was our 6th CHP in two days we were delighted to see that it was only a short stroll up to the trig stone next to a mast. It measured a mile up and back and we were in the car again within 20 minutes heading for Westmeath.
See Dillon’s (dillonkdy) full story of his County High Point Challenge at https://dillons32chpchallenge.github.io/progress/index.html We also found Kieron Gribbon's High Point Ireland website (www.highpointireland.com) to be a useful source of information for our 32 County High Points challenge. Definitely worth checking out if you're planning to do any of the High Point challenges. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/18814/

Highest point in Co Longford. We climbed this (with buggy) by walking up the access road to the telecom mast- highest point is a cairn just past it to the right. Lovely family excursion! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/974/comment/3316/

Longford County Top
by mazamegaza  18 Feb 2016
We walked up to Corn Hill as part of our County Top Odyssey and afterwards drove over to Westmeath to walk up Mullaghmeen. Once we had found the grey metal gate on the service road to the mast at the top of corn hill, it took 9 minutes to dander up to the top. There is a trig and the trees obscure some of the view.
