360 degree views from a heathery top.

Park in front of the school at N31338 98810 A It is possible to walk through the graveyard through a gate into the road leading to the quarry.

The views from the top are expansive though not necessarily dramatic and are amongst the best of the Binnions (sub 400m with 150m prominence) around the North Midlands. The view below is of the Ardra Lough with Cuilcagh on the centre skyline.
Bruse Hill is a Natural Heritage Area and according to Cavan County Council: "The mountain is a natural habitat to a vast array of species of plants and wildlife and because of its status as an area with such biodiversity it falls within a Natural Heritage Area. At the summit of the hill there are three stone cairns which may date from the Neolithic Period. It is also possible on clear day to see five counties from the summit. The mountain is accessible to walkers from the quarry." Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/994/comment/4676/
