Excursion to the NW

Clashcarne NW Top is not surprisingly eclipsed by its towering neighbours but it is worth taking in from the summit of Clashcarne or could easily be used as part of a circuit from Doo Lough. From Clashcarne it is a drop down NW some 600ft to the col with the NW Top. The initial part of this drop is over very steep ground with rocks and scree so caution is needed but this soon eases to grass and it is a short climb upto the summit. There are perhaps better views of Mwreela here as can see into the corrie and the length of Doo Lough. There are also good views out to sea to the various islands and east along the Sheefrys. Surprisingly it took about the same time to reascend Clashcarne (30 mins) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/312/comment/1117/
