Barnahowna from Buckaun valley?
by jkforde  18 Apr 2010
First time commenting on MV so if this is in the wrong place please let me know.

We did a lovely short walk up Buckaun and around Lough Nadirkmore yesterday (SE of Mauntrasna) and noticed that there's another road from Killateenaun on the northern side of the valley which looks like it goes as far as the end of the valley at Dirkbeg below the shared col with Barnahowna and L.Glenawough (M002656 A). Would this be a good access point for Barnahowna and the other northern corries for a walk?

And FYI, Tourmakeady Tourism Group have some nice maps of some of the walks in the Partrys on their website: http://www.tourmakeady.com/tourist_walks.html Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/421/comment/4629/
