Coomcathcun's extensive plateau is an obstacle course of water and rock. Navigation will be difficult in poor conditions. There is a real sense of remoteness. Human traffic is almost non existent. This would be an interesting place to set up camp for a few days of contemplation. Getting there would not be easy, but it would be worth it. My particular favorites are the many tiny lakes, and their rocky cradles. The photo is taken at point V 63744 69914 C and shows the nearby lake, with Kenmare Bay and Beara in the background Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/313/comment/16034/
