Did this from West to East - apparently it's not the usual way. Went from the Black Valley up to Cnoc na Peiste via Lough Googh, then down to the Big Gun and on to An Cruach Mhor before descending back down to the Black Valley again. Great walk, would highly recommend it - took just over 5 hours. And the Big Gun is one heck of a thrill, tried to stay on the ridge as much as possible, though we were forced to go around rather than over some rocky outcrops in one or two parts. And there were a couple of areas where we had to jump from one rocky ledge to another. But couldn't recommend it highly enough. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/10/comment/3715/
