Nondescript Summit with Expansive Views in Wild Country
by ciarraioch  4 Nov 2012
We took in Cnoc Breac as an extension from Drom Doire Loch (see associated entry). Looking deceptively close, it took a good half hour across rocky and water logged ground. Expansive views across Beara to the Cow and the Bull Rocks. The latter, formerly Teach Duinn, was a gateway to the underworld in the old religion. We continued via Loch na mBreac Dearg (Red Trout Lake) towards Cnoc Ramhar/Knockrour. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/255/comment/14856/
