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.

Cock Mountain: A McVeigh Spelga

There are many Spelga Circuits. Gerry McVeigh's MOURNE MOUNTAINS - HIGH CIRCUIT OF SPELGA will certainly give you the "feel" of the general area in autumn. It is , I am afraid, a little bleak. He...

Aghla Beg: A PATRICK ZERKOWSKI FILM

The closest I have gotten to the Aghlas to date is to observe them from Mackoght and Errigal. When I do get to walk that way I will be having another good look at Patrick Zerkowski's YouTube film ...
