Mountain Trails
Everpresent - I've been spurred into action by the Northerner Black Craeture and his scurrilous comments on those of us south of the border.
For one of the best trails across open mountain in the south I suggest you take in the Brandon ridge from Cloghane village to Mount Brandon there to Gearhane then on to Ballysitteragh/Beenabrack across the Connor Pass and up the other side(Cental Dingle Mountains) to Slieveanea and across as far as Knockmulane and down from there to Anascaul village. Two of us did it last year in Mayover 3 days camping at Lough Na mBan and at a lake under the north side of Gowlane Beg on the second night. You have views out over the Blaskets and the Atlantic as well as over all of Kerry as far as the 'Reeks. The walk from Cloghane to Mount Brandon is along a well worn track from Faha and you are bound to meet other people but after that you'll only come in contact with civilisation again briefly at the connor pass while crossing the road. The trail is easy to follow and seldom drops below 600 mtrs - there are quite a few comments on Mountainviews describing the area and maps 70,71 cover the area. I hope you find this of interest and that you have a good trip- all the best

The Eagles Rock: A short but sweet scramble

One of the few Irish summits that needs the use of hands by the easiest route. Those happy with exposure can get a good airy scramble (grade 2, pushing 3 maybe), by slanting left up an obvious ram...

Slieve Foye: Irish Gabbro!

Gabbro is one of the roughest and most frictiony rocks around and is superb for scrambling on, as all visitors to the Skye Cuiilin across the water know. I never realised until yesterday that Slie...

Clermont Carn: Easy but a great view.

If you drive up the road this has to be a contender for the easiest summit in Ireland, but it's well worth doing for the superb view. Wicklow to Donegal, with the Meath lowlands spread out like a ...
