Eagle territory

To complete this top or An Bheann Mhór in isolation, suggest you take the track that leads from the valley to the SW of Coomcallee - the track continues all the way to the col between Coomcallee and this top. From there it is a fairy easy climb to the west over grassy terrain. The summit itself is little to look at and I had to wander around with my GPS before I finally located the small pile of stones which seems to mark the highest point. The ordinary nature of the top was compensated however when a sheep farmer called out to me and pointed skywards, where a pair of white tailed eagles were soaring majestically. Later on spotted several more of the birds which can have an impressive wingspan of over two metres. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/152/comment/14882/

A separate top? Hmm...dubious. (Although it's positively Kilimanjaro-esque compared to Beennabrack near the Conor Pass). Coming from the east there's a steady, relentless ascent of about 100m alongside the fence, then a pretty indeterminate top: I pity skyehigh coming here when the ground wasn't frozen, as all I had to worry about was locating the highest point (accomplished by my usual method of clomping around all likely-looking hummocks and laying down on top of some of them in an elementary levelling exercise) rather than drenching myself. Anyway, the surroundings are gorgeous even if the immediate environment isn't especially dramatic. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/152/comment/3479/

skyehigh on Beann na Stiocairí, 2005

This must be the least deserving top featured in our lists, as the depression between this and the main top is a mere 22 metres. Any doubts as to whether we are talking about the top of a mountain or the top of a lough can be dispelled by the accompanying photograph, which shows the top to be - a lough. In fact, point 672 lies somewhere in the middle of a peaty area which the ridge fence sensibly skirts around. There is no point describing descents, as nobody in their right mind will descend north or south, but will follow the ridge. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/152/comment/1746/

Why you shouldn't go north from this summit.
by simon3  29 May 2012
The northern side of the ridge on which the summit sits is a lot more impressive than the summit itself, a pimple. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/152/comment/6830/
