Serene, Graceful and Light
by CaptainVertigo  22 Apr 2014
A Bhinn Lair sails like a ship between the waters of Namona and Cloonaghlin (pictured) to its south and Derriana to its north, heading for Ballinskelligs Bay. It tapers like Sheep's Head Way or Croaghaun, but it an understated way because,while it is sea bound, it has some miles to travel before it will reach its destination. I found its narrow southern road and the degree of habitation on its south western flanks a little disconcerting so I parked near Oweveen Bridge (under Bheann Mhor) and walked across between Namona and Cloonaghlin shortly after dawn. The isthmus is cut by a stream between the lakes bridged by stacked flat stones. Seek permission before you go this way. From this point you can see the great horseshoe of surrounding mountains.
There is something serene about this mountain. If some of its compatriots are rough, gnarled or even monstrous, this one has a certain delicate grace and, surrounded as it is by water, lights up easily. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/424/comment/16024/
