Another way in to the Carran area starts at around W03939 68915 B where there is parking for one car or perhaps a bit further east where the tarmac road stops with permission from the people that live near there.

Getting to Carran South requires going first east into the fine west facing coum. Turn right at around W04857 68778 C and SW via tracks to W04138 67735 D. From there it is possible to get to Carran South relatively easily (or Carran)

The picture shows Carran South from Carran. Not exactly a steep sided summit! As john_desmond says this place is a bit out of the way and rarely visited. The summit on the skyline to the right is Conigar. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/331/comment/2355/
