Just south of Barnahowna this impressive glacial valley stretches towards Lough Mask. By coming into this valley from the vicinity of Killateeaun (in mist at top of pic) it should be possible to reach the col between Maumtrasna and Barnahowna affording access to either. The col is at L996 670 C and is near where this picture was taken . I haven’t tried it but one way would be to go to the west end of the forest shown below and walk NE along a narrow path that exists along a decayed fence above the trees to the col. Or perhaps start from the east end of the forest though it looks very steep. Or go through the forest (a single ride is shown on a satellite picture from about 2000 going directly through the forest immediately south of Barnahowna – but that can hardly be guaranteed.)
