I was looking through some photos from last year (December I think) and, with the newly discovered miracle that is photoshop, managed to come up with this panorama from the summit of Lyracappul. From the left is Galtymore, Lyracappul South East top, Knockaterriff , Knockaterriff Beg, and Temple Hill on the extreme left. One of the less trodden routes you can take here involves climbing up Lyracappul South East top, over to Lyracappul and down via Knockaterriff. On this route you may seek out the "crop-circle"sheep pen on the side of Lyracappul South East top, the masterpiece of stonework that is the wall beside the track that runs along the Blackrock river, the ruined booley houses on the side of Knockaterriff and the sheer face of exposed rock in Pigeonrock Glen. Lyracappul has always given me a sense of splendid isolation when standing on top of it. Steep drops on three sides,good shelter crouching behind the county wall for the oxtail soup and the ham sandwich, with the countryside stretching out below. Paradise indeed.
