The first bright of the morning sun glints rosy on the pinnacle

From the statue of Our Lady in Ballylanders, I drove along the Ballyhoura Way for 2 miles. The little yellow arrows led me yet again to Our Lady, this time at the grotto opposite Glenbrohane Church. I left the car here (R7390 2550 B) and started southwards along the tarred road. After about 500m, a marker post on the right hand side (could be easily missed) leads you over a stile and steeply uphill on a winding track.

The track section is relatively short and emerges onto a forestry road which skirts around the wind turbine (close to the 362m spot height). After about a kilometre you will reach the crest of the hill and just as the Ballyhoura Way begins to head downhill, there are two right turns about 100m apart. I took the second of these (R 7265 2465 C) and took the next right turn along this track which leads to the communications mast just short of the summit. I'm sure it's possible to go around the mast enclosure to the summit but I turned at this point and headed back down.

As I made my way back down, the sun had risen above the outline of the Galtees and was struggling to break through the morning haze. Even though the sun wasn't quite winning the battle, the sunrise provided a vivid background to the giant whirring blades of the turbine. Maybe next time, I'll think to bring the camera!
