Harry Goodman on Carn Traonach, 2009

I climbed Carntreena (Carn Traonach) on 30 July as part of a circuit of Tievealehid (Taobh an Leithid). It has a bald, stoney, rounded top, with an expansive summit cairn and a fantastic panorama of the Donegal Highlands to the East. About 200 metres to the NNW of the large summit cairn is a small cairned rockey outcrop which is also worth a visit. To anyone wanting to climb this hill I would commend a round which includes the other nearby tops of Malaidh na Leacht and Tievealehid (Taobh an Leithid) starting at the access road to the Wind Farm on Malaidh na Leacht Map Ref. B855227 A. A shorter and more direct approach can of course be made from some point along the N56 which runs S to N to the E of the hill. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/716/comment/3998/
