Easy Route up Croghan Kinsella. Slightly surprised this was not already uploaded, as I imagine it is the most frequented route up the hill, though the fact that it is almost entirely waymarked might explain it! Having identified it as an easy stroll, I took Bunsen Junior along for the trip. If you were pressed for time you could probably be up and down within 2 hours. A determined summiteer would probably brave some of the furze and bag the 2 adjacent tops while in the vicinity. My minor diversions were to the benches at the "viewing points" Very good long distance views. Follow the way-marked "blue" trail from the entrance at White Heaps. Worth reading about the Wicklow Gold Rush of the 1790s before visiting this area. Using google maps, look up "Raheenleagh wind farm" and you will be directed to the start point.
