We approached Carrigroe from the north, after tackling Carrigalachan. Despite the extra 32 metres in elevation, the views over to Bran Scultair and Carrigalachan aren't quite as good as those from Carrigalachan. It's worth the modest investment required to get up, and makes a handy waypoint on a ridge walk down to Bran Scultair. Pic shows the view of Carrigroe (L) and Bran Scultair (R) taken from Carrigalachan. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/471/comment/2860/
