I choose to start on the western side of the hill, given that the Monaghan way gives closest access to the summit from here. Parked up just past farm buildings on the edge of the road. The track up is a farm track and well used by cattle!!! Once past this it is on to rudimentary forest tracks before trying to best guess the actual summit. The highlight of this little walk is further on at the excellently preserved and quite impressive neolithic passage tomb, from where you will get the only decent views of the walk. Then following the track on before taking a right turn back down on to the road (not wanting to return through the slurry path!). The short walk back to the car does give a chance to check out the landscape feature that Monaghan is most synonymous with, the modest drumlin!
