Unfortunately- the below route now appears inaccessible without prior permission from landowners. See comment posted by Redape99 also.

A superb walk, with a great range to all views. I started out for Caherbarnagh from south of Ballydaly on the track to Gortavehy Lake,which is shown on the OS Map. Once up to the lake I followed the Duhallow way signs east and once 500m east of the lake I headed south climbing up to the ridge of the hill. (follow the rocky path up to the ridge). I chose this route to ease the climbing gradient! The surface conditions were very slippery coming towards the ridge. Once on the ridge I proceeded west for Caherbarnagh. From Caherbarnagh I back tracked westwards along the ridge to the Cairn shown on the OS map and made the descent from there down the gravel surface. Visibility wasn't great on the day but I could still make out the Dingle Peninsula and 'Reeks to the west and much brighter weather to the South! and into West Cork. I'd imagine views of Ballyhoura Mountains could be taken on a better day. Overall this took me 2:30hrs at a good pace and was c7km in length.
