During his visit to Kerry in 1809 the Welsh botanist Lewis Dillwyn wrote “The air was filled with the fragrance of wild flowers, and the eye wherever it turned beheld a region of delight, in which nature seemed to have unlocked all her treasures”
Sitting on the broad col between Mangerton and Stoompa on a hot July day I’m not sure the carpet of insect devouring Butterwort(Bog Violet) had quite the fragrance he had in mind but the Horses Glen certainly had the view.
The peaks of Mangerton North and Glenacappul tower overhead.
From the left are the corries Lough Erhogh and Lough Managh flowing down to Lough Garagarry. The rocks facing the viewer across the Glen are unusual in being volcanic in origin (you can see the rounded shape of the out-flow under Glenacappul ) surrounded by Green Sandstone and Purple Siltstone.
