The walk to Little Carron began for me at R66277 16805
The is barely room to park one car here at the roadside. A better option might be to park at R66494 16799 and walk to the start.
I followed the track up to Long mountain and Seefin and the down to join the Ballyhoura way.
I then followed the generally good track over the bog to Little Carron.
There is quite a large mast and buildings near the summit and these certainly take from the little view that there is. The area is also very damaged by bikers. I met 2 different groups of bikers near the summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/662/comment/2802/
