Curraghmore Lake from the start of the Caher Ridge. Looking down into the Black Valley, with Cummeenduff Lough in the lake in the background. Access to the ridge from Curraghmore Lake is either by an easy scramble up the gully to the left of the lake, or by keeping to the grassy slopes to the right of the gully.
