For Sunday I had planned a circuit of Lavagh Beg, Silver Hill, Cullaghcro and Binnasruell, but I felt the stirrings of a cold on Saturday night, and it was full blown by Sunday morning. Even so, when the alarm went off, it was such a beautiful day I couldn't resist heading off, and decided I would at least do Lavagh Beg. I parked around G 93723 93580 D and went south, then east, along the track before striking up on to the hillside making for the low point on the prominent northern off-shoot of Lavagh Beg. It was a short, relatively easy climb, although I saw enough to know that after a prolonged wet spell, this mountain could potentially verge on the hateful! The wind was ferocious at the top despite there being hardly a breeze lower down, but in the sunshine, the views were stunning all around. Silver Hill looked great too, and I'll be back to complete the circuit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/196/comment/18385/
