Attained from the Glenbarrow car park (G.R.369 082 A) via the Ridge of Cappard this top seems to attain more significance. The first km or so follows the infant Barrow over slab rock and a qiye impressive falls. The waymarked arrows were left where they recrossed to the north bank and a track was followed to the ridge top at 350 metres just above the telecomms tower. Thence the ridge of Capard extends SW for about 2km The photo shows a curious cairn near the top of Carnahinch 483m. from where a forest edge can be followed to point 509. We made an abortive attempt to cross the Barrow headt oward Knockastumpa (too much dense spruce) and returned to the start on a forest track from about g.r.320 050 B About a 4-hour walk with minimal risk of vertigo, but fine views over the midlands in all directions.
