A walk centred on Kanturk (close to Scarr) could begin at the forest entrance, O106 055 G. Following the forest track to the end and through a curtain of trees, you meet the Inchavore River and walk downstream. Just where the valley broadens out, there’s a small coppice of native trees – among them several specimens of oak – that probably gives a good idea of the local woodland in the past, before the pine plantations came. On the flanks of Kanturk, to the right, can soon be seen the livid scar of a blocked-off mine shaft, similar to those in Glendalough and Glendasan. Further on, the crumbling ruins, close to where the road out of the valley begins, were perhaps also related to this activity, although the name of the area, Bolenasaggart, seems to point in another direction. This isn’t a bad place (O139 042 H) to start climbing up to the right, the only climb of the walk and no more than 300m. It avoids a lot of the knee-high heather that is a feature of the gentler slopes further on. Among the knolls on top, there is a trodden path in places, but don’t count on keeping to it if the mist falls! At the western end, a track continues SW to the car park at Glenmacnass Waterfall, so at some point you will need to make your way NW, taking your bearings from Carrigshouk in the distance and aiming to meet the road around O103 044 I. You have to make your own track over this rolling but not unpleasant bogland, where turf cutting is still carried on in the traditional way. When you finally reach the Military Road, there remains a walk to the starting point, about one and a half kms away to the right. The circuit is no more than 11 kms. Kanturk may not be as airy as its close neighbour, Scarr, but it definitely has its own charms. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/210/comment/3132/
