An excellent walk that includes the magnificent Caves of Kesh. this route starts at a little lay by below Keshcorran with room for three cars. read my summit comment for Keshcorran to learn all about the history and folklore associated with this hill. Be careful on the steep slopes below the caves - when wet they will be very slippy! Also look forward to waist high heather nearer the summit. When coming back down I neared the top of the cliffs for a look but then turned back west to find an easier way down. If you follow my route please be exceptionally careful if you are above the cliffs housing the caves. Overall a tough little hill with a lot to think about.
