Dogs - Beware of the Eagles
by Colin Murphy  20 Nov 2012
For main ascent, see comment for Beann na Stiocairí, from where it is a short hike about 600m to the west to reach the rounded summit of An Bheann Mhór (which means literally 'The Big Peak' and not as someone recently suggested to me, 'The Big Woman'), which is marked by a trig pillar. Eagles soared overhead for the duration of the walk to the top and had a chat along the way with a friendly local sheep farmer who informed me that he only took the larger of his sheep dogs up there as he was afraid the eagles would snatch the smaller ones. (See comment on Beann na Stiocairí for pic of eagle) As I returned in the evening light towards Beann na Stiocairí to begin my descent, the tip of the Beara peninsula was suddenly lit up by shafts of light, making for a beautiful end to a rewarding day. The land poking out into the Atlantic on the right is Dursey Island. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/148/comment/14884/
