From Carnaween (see Carnaween and Silver Hill for previous parts of route) it is a matter of retracing steps back past the wind turbines to thier access road and following it uphill. The road fords the Eany Beg Water but there was no mission with the volume and speed of water - I had to follow along the bank over very wet and disturbed ground from recent earthworks until I reached the point where the river is dammed. There is a pretty large resevoir impressively flanked by surrounding hills. Skirt around to the eastern side of the resevoir and then I'm afraid it is a bit of a slog heading for the high ground and ultimately Binnasruell. Not very impressive given the much higher and more interesting hills all around (but the views of these hills make the walk more than worthwhile) - the summit is like a crown surrounding Lough Anabrack. It is only when you drop down a little to the SE that can appreciate the steep flanks of the hill dropping down into the deep gap of Struell below. I then headed back towards the head of the Eany Beg Water and a climb back up Silver Hill where I had left my pack with camping gear. A drop down to the col with Lavagh Beg and further down into the Reelan valley to pick up and follow the track which brought me in. Not a soul did I see in these two days in the Bluestacks and walking through the expanse of the Reelan valley with music playing in my ears and the sun beating down is a memory that will stay with me for a good many years.
