Sat . 10th Sept. and it was time for a wee hill walk and the weather looked promising. Wed been talking about doing Bulbin for a long time and as we are only back in the hills its good to break yourself in easy. We headed for Aughaweel and drove up the road in the general direction of the windmills. The road is reasonable and we parked at Drumlough on the North side of Doo- lough, (a small lake). Because we wanted to take in the views we did not make a b-line for the mountain top, instead we veered to the east side and began our climb from there. The ground was very wet as there had been heavy rain the night before, sections of the mountain appear to have been eroded with the weather with large areas of black moss being exposed, similar to the erosion of sand dunes on a coastline. There is also evidence of a lot of quad activity. The walk took roughly 2 hours,( however this is the longer route, if you come up from the Pinch side it is shorter) at a very leisurely pace and was an easy walk. The views from the summit were brilliant as it was a beautiful sunny day. On top of the hill stands a large 3 metre high concrete cross erected to commemorate Irelands Eucharistic Congress in June 1932, we were glad of the shelter from the structure. We had clocked just over 5km.
