Straightforward walk from Cnoc an Bhraca to the boulder covered summit for my last top of the day. I presume the mountain dereives its name from the unusual rock formation at the top which vaguely resembles the horns of a bull. Descended to the west (Black Valley side) of Drishana on the advice of a very helpful walker I had met on Tomies earlier in the day and indeed the terrain proved easy taking this route. This left a short walk back to the Head of the Gap. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/179/comment/4413/
