Richard Mersey’s “The Hills of Cork & Kerry” calls it Akinkeen and says of a traverse that he did “The dramatic shape of that walk lay in Lough Akinkeen and the considerable cliff above it. It was good to traverse its edge.” Our photo speaks for itself about the landscape. It shows Lough Akinkeen from the top of the ridge, around 380m above.
The skyline summits in the heat haze are to the left Carran and to the centre Bealick. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/120/comment/443/
