Ascent Trip Report

Parked in the car park at Kirkmirran and took the very good path up to Screel Hill. From there we dropped using the good path until it headed back to the car park. We then struck off down a ride for about a mile. Once back on open hillside it was an easy matter to reach the top. The descent involved wading through head high bracken for me (Poor C) to reach the forest track. The last sting in the tail was just before the car park when the track went through a clearing. It just so happened that the clearing was used to house Bullock, Oh how C ran.
