I approached this one from the South-East side, from Bealick. The ground was very boggy and it was slow going. If I was going to do it again, I think I'd come in from the public road from the Kilgarvan side and go up the track at W035 662 A . Looking down at this road from the summit, you realise how close it is. From here, it is only a short walk to Carran itself and the going is easier. As for the summit itself, you have a choice of 2 points. They are only about 10 metres apart. There are a few stones on the Southern one although by looking at the mountains in the background, I'd reckon the Northern one is the highest and this is where I took the GPS readings. In terms of location, this summit is not part of any obvious loop circuit and as such, it is a bit out of the way. Having completed a walk of all the Carran tops, I saw no sign of footprints or erosion which would suggest that very few people walk in this part of Kerry.
