A windy windy mountain
by brenno  1 Jun 2011
What is it about Scarr and gale force winds on the stretch running north-south from Kanturk up the summit of Scarr and down the ridge towards Paddock Hill and Laragh. I must have done this hike half a dozen times in the past few years and there's always been a gale at the top even though there's barely a puff of wind when starting off at Lough Dan or Glenmacnass. Same last Saturday, gentle breezes all the way to Kanturk and then an almighty gale all the way to the top of Scarr. Is it the orientation of this ridge between two deep valleys - Glenmacnass on one side and Lough Dan on the other - or is is just that the wind gods have been active on the days I've been up there. Spoke to some other hikers in the pub afterwards who'd walked Barnacullian ridge between Tonelagee and Mullacleevaun at the same time I did Kanturk-Scarr and they said they had only light winds - and they were only a few miles away as the crow flies That said, the walk from Lough Dan (park in the layby just beyond the Scouts centre - Kanturk - Scarr - Paddock Hill - Laragh is a grand walk with great views on (mostly) good ground. An easy 3-4 hours and can be cut short if needs be at the top of Scarr heading straight back down to Lough Dan. Maybe though think of doing it in reverse starting from Laragh and have the wind at your back rather than have to put the head down into the southwesterly Scarr gale!!!
