While climbing Knockanora to the southwest earlier in the day I spotted a possible route up through the unkempt fields of the southwest shoulder of Gortagarry. From the maps an approach from the west appeared to offer a half to a third of the forest bashing as described by previous posters. In a few years this shouldn't be an issue as the forest matures. I parked the car in a layby at the start of this walk. The grass land is becomming dominated by furze and other weeds, but this is easily outmanouvered. I also used a dodgy road cut into the hillside as part of my ascent. Reaching the top of the hill I pushed into the forestry and reached the ill defined summit with the aid of my GPS (completely necessary!).

Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 1h 12m + 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.
