by Peter Walker  16 Dec 2008 The final top on the Maughernane Circuit is Glanbeg, and it really is a matter of just a couple of minutes absence from the col before it. It's well worth that little diversion, both to look at the reasonably imposing ridge you've just descended, and to take one last proper look at the beautiful westward view. On returning to the col, the initial northward descent is rough but easy: not too steep. A track should be obvious below: this (I believe) is the track marked on the map that reaches the road at (585700 (Point A)), so obviously it extends much further up the hill than denoted on sheet 83. I picked this up and followed it down to around the 200m contour, before cutting ENE in a noble (but doomed) attempt to find the other track marked which seemingly reached the road near where I'd left my car (597698 (Point B)): what I actually found was a fascinating assault course of bog, incipient streams, deep drainage ditches and barbed wire fences (all of which I negotiated, but those following in my footsteps might wish to bear in mind that I'm 6'3 with 34" inside leg). I arrived back at the car just as 'very late afternoon' gave way to 'twilight'...and oh so glad I'd pulled my finger out and actually done something on my last day of this particular trip!
Point A: V585 700 Point B: V597 698 (turn area map On)

Not only great views, but saw four deer and a large herd of around 10 wild goats on my last visit in July 2013. Didn't know that these were to be found in the National Park.
