The Owenglin Horseshoe
Hi CaptainVertigo, better off ascending Bengower from Benbreen rather than the other way around on your first go or if its misty. It's just a bit of a scramble in places, and picking your way along rock ledges. There's a bit of a path in places. The descent of Benbreen is a steep scree slope (ideal for a scree run). A good guidebook in Paddy Dillion's Connemara. I've done the Owenglin horseshoe in its entirety twice, so if you need any more pointers, just give me a buzz.

Aidy 9 hours ago.
A post just to show a photo looking back along One Man's Pass from Slieve League towards the South-East Top. The top of the ridge was wide enough to not feel dangerous at any point.

Aidy 10 hours ago.
Rarely done on its own I'd say, being the lowest of the three summits on a Slieve League walk, but like the others, the views are breathtaking.

A very accessible hill, well signed on the approach roads, with a track for the entire short walk to the top with its trig pillar. Good views over much of Fermanagh.

Hazards of the small hills

Didn't expect much danger on little Cullen Hill, but at the trig pillar, I found that this bull had some up behind me, remarkably quietly, and was watching me very intently. I made a slow retreat,...
