Grand Walk - Difficult fording at western end
by ciarraioch  4 Oct 2011
Parked close to the high point on Bothar na gCloch between Aughils and Camp. Headed west along sodden bohereen at top of road (just to south of Caherconree 'trailhead') towards Knockbrack. Followed ridge west south west over Knockbrack, Moanloar, Beenduff and Emlagh. Nice and dry after initial ascent. Great views as attested by the others. Against better judgement, we descended west off Emlagh (Cnoc na Stuaice), enjoying fantastic views of Inch from its steep dry and stony slopes. The road north from Inch village tantalisingly close. Unfortunately the Emlagh river (note this is not a stream) lay between us and the road. This proved difficult and even a little dangerous to ford. Once across getting out of the gorse covered ravine onto the road proved very difficult and might not be possible for a walker on their own. Although there seems to be an alternative by travelling west north west from Emlagh mountain to avoid fording the river, this involves travelling through fields close to a farmhouse. Based on our experience, I would follow three5four0's advice which is to descent from the saddle before Emlagh towards the transmitter mast in the forest below. Apart from getting onto the road, this is a very pleasant ridge walk and I am surprised that it hasn't been done by more people. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/506/comment/6537/
