Did Mweelrea again on Sunday - from the north end of Doo Lough into Coum Dubh, up the ramp, over to summit, back over north around the ridge to Ben Lugmore East and then down a steep grassy slope to the salmon weir at the south end of the lake.

Twas a fantastic 6 hour walk! I have a good GPX track if anyone wants one (by the way, tracked using ViewRanger app on a Nokia E52 with OSI 50k mapping - the app and mapping aren't free but well worth it).

Now, must do the Sheeffys again soon for the view into Coum Dubh opposite.... :) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/34/comment/6306/
