Parked at layby at O02139 22457 on McDonagh's Lane. Followed track straight up the hill-side. Cross the forrest track just over halfway up and slightly further on at O2116 22708 (as they say in financial circles!) 'take the cut' across the hill to the left. Follow that track all the way to the monstrous communications masts.
Had a bit of trouble locating the summit O01873 22838 as it is ESE of the masts and there is no definite track over to it.
Headed back to recover my steps back down track to the car.

...On checking the map above I notice that I located the Megalithic Tomb and not the summit as marked. There is so much dross on the OS map at the summit that I assumed the summit mark was another communications tower! Will have to call again ...

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 0h 27m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
