A beacon of sight....

Parking on Beacon lane for one to south east and go through gate for short walk to summit marked by a beacon and trig pillar. Surprisingly for a small hill extensive views to north as large drop off is a short distance away Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B5428/comment/21571/
