Mooooo!

For those who prefer an alternative to the five euros and tourists associated with Geokaun, Bray Head (summit seemingly named Foiltagarriff on OSI Sheet 78) provides a jaunt equal in scenery but considerably superior in terms of quietness. Starting from Mr Bloke's point B the track leads easily and obviously up to the signal tower from where a right turn leads up an easy slope along the edge of the cliffs (assorted faint paths) to the top. No cows in-situ when I was there (plenty on the way up though, so I'd echo the point about comfort in the company of cattle being required) but nor was there mist: therefore I can confidently state that there's some excellent cliff scenery here.

It's easy enough to cut the corner back to the track on the return by heading ESE from the summit: the route of descent is arrayed before you. Easier to avoid the cows that way too. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1010/comment/5954/
