Long trek to summit
by Fergalh  23 Feb 2021
Parked at Howgill to the west beside a caravan park. Headed up the track which wound its way through the trees before entering onto open Ground. Shortly you will pass by the cairn on the minor peak of Devils Apronful. Than the track continued onto the obvious outcrop that is Simons Seat. The summit is marked by a trig pillar Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B5311/comment/22418/
