Just a picture of Crohane to go with my earlier comment from about this fine mountain. You can actually see it from the county bounds aswell. It really is a gem. Nothing too hectic, but it is remote. The surrounding valleys are home to herds of wild goats. I have oodels of pictures of them but here is crohane from the Cork-Killarney road. Head into Lough Guitane from the N22, swing a left when confronted by the lake, park and up you go. The only way I've ever gone up is from this point at W037 835 C but I'd love to have a go from Glenflesk itself right from the post office. I recommend Crohane to Carrigamhadra, breakfast at Lough Nabroda and an exit through the cappagh river valley. Its some valley and not worth coming at Bennaunmore or Stoompa from the south to miss it. What I'm saying is don't miss out on this valley. Stompa can be navigated at a challenge from Lough Nabrean too. This way one can get to walk the valley twice. Also don't ever miss the chance to do Bennaunmore from the North head on. This mountain of a hill has three peaks to reach the top and has loads of secrets. It is in a word unique in my experience for such a little fellow.
