I Parked to the N then along obvious route, first along hard path, then across peat bog, not the most interesting of paths, Pillar is in good condition and located just outside huge mast compound, the views (if you ignore the mast) are great from the top in all directions, right over to the Mournes in NI i could make out Slieve Donnard (where i was last week) This is a hill with a lot going for it.
