With the short spell of good weather we appear to be having it would be a shame not to get out over the weekend. So I headed off down to Glenmalur on Saturday 13th March. Yup I had it all planned out...just me, Lug, the snow capped peaks and if I was lucky maybe even some deer. Sure who else would be out what the rugby on.....as I struggled to find a suitable spot to lay up the car in Baravore carpark T066942 G I cursed my niavity. Well I was here now and would have to make the most of the day. Im not the biggest fan of heavy populated areas and would tend to steer clear of the general direction the hoards seem to be moving toward. So after a quick review of the map it was decided, Benleagh & Camenabologue would be on the menu.

Crossed the Avonbeg River via the footbridge and contuined along the gravel track which leads up to the an oige youth hostel and shortly afterwards took the track which bears left (contuining on the original track will take you further into the Glenmalur valley). Followed this forest track right around into Fraughan Glen where the views really open out in front of you. The entire track is not clearly identified on Sheet 56 (at least my dated one!!) but it will take you deep into the glen and only really peters out at the back wall of the glen - at this point another faint track can be picked up which stays to the right hand side of the benleagh river and continues up and over Fraughan Glen. Spectacular views back down the glen and across to Lugduff can be enjoyed. Once over the glen I was glad I decided to give Lug a miss given the amount of people coming to and fro. Sticking next to the benleagh river will provide a good handrail and before long the river noticebly forks right and I forked with it! The going along this strecth of the walk was boggy and gaiters are advisable! The river eventually peters out but navigation is simple enough. It did however take me some time to locate the exact summit of Benleagh but after much circling around I stumbled upon the cairn which is perched aloft a peat hag.

I couldn't resist a short detour before I contuined on to Camenabologue and I headed east of Benleagh to really get a good look over the cliffs surrounding Fraughan Glen. The picture below was taken from one of the rocky outcrops over the glen on the Benleagh side, and clearly shows Arts Lough. From here I retraced my steps back to Benleagh and continued on to Camenabologue. Refer to same for rest of route. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/126/comment/4506/
