Short Summary created by aidand,  23 Sep 2014
Beendarrig is a straightforward climb. The Kerry Way passes close to the summit. Follow the 'yellow man' signs from either the Bridia Valley or from near Lough Acoose. There are wonderful views, so it is well worth doing on a fine day, maybe when you haven't time to climb some of the bigger mountains in the area.

The Red Peak

The first of the trio of hills named for colours, this can be approached from either V76140 84006 A or V 77955 81514 B. Better still, if you have two cars start on the Loch Acoose side and finish in a civilised manner in the excellent Stepping Stone Café just at the end of your descent into the Bridia Valley. Beann Bhán and Beann Dubh can be easily handled in the same excursion. The views are great but the ground is wet and slippy and fairly steep descending Binn Dearg for Beann Bhán. Notable views of Caher, Mullach an Aitinn, Stumpa Duloigh and the wild Uibh Ráthach country. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/620/comment/17743/

As well as excellent views of Bridia, Caher looms above the lack road, well worth a diversion if you're in the area. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/620/comment/18164/
