Mind you, grand terrain from the other side!

Yep, it's a heartbreaker going from Beann Mhór. Contemplated it before...then thought naaaaa.

Did it from the Sneem side. Leave car where road forks and there is a house on the corner, near point C on the map above. Don't be tempted to stay on the road and get nearer, as you just come to a formidable locked gate with keep out signs, and have to either reverse for ages or do a 14 point turn on a narrow lane. The walk crosses farmland for the first 15 minutes so a few fences to get over and keep an eye out for animals. Would suspect it could get fairly wet, did it during our very dry summer. After that, it's open country and about 30 minutes to the top, where there is a small collection of dishes and a low mast, but apart from that some really wonderful views.

Beautiful Place, DREADFUL terrain

Nearly got fooled by this one, all 261m of it. Roughest terrain I've encountered and that's including the area south of Lough Cloon. In November 2014, we went for what we thought was a 'jolly' starting at V 635 651 A as per three5four0, going across Beann Mhór, Dereenavurrig and diverting to explore the wild country to the southeast near the western mouth of the Sneem inlet V 68237 63114 B. Six hours later we arrived back to the second car at V 67920 65225 C as darkness closed in. Impossible to make progress due to rock bench followed by gulley and/or swamp followed by rock bench, and so on and on. To make matters worse, it would appear that the former East German Border personnel were drafted in to put up the fencing. It would have been impossible to navigate this terrain in darkness. Would definitely NOT recommend our route. If you have to do it, I would suggest returning directly along the grain of the land from the summit of Derrenavurrig towards our finishing point.
