Sheep tracks and Hull
by eflanaga  14 Sep 2013
Cnoc Iochtair is a short distance west of Skregmore IV 79211 86035 C (see for previous stage of walk) there is a fairly sharp drop onto a narrow col before a steepish climb up onto the smallest and final summit of this anti-clockwise Horseshoe Walk - Cnoc Iochtair, the name coming from the lough at its base. The ascent was quite easy to the usual small cairn. The lough is not visible from the summit but again the view across the distant bay to the Brandon Group of mountains was noteworthy. From the summit I took a sheep track to the left (south) travelling west down towards the Hydro Road and the river which I had used earlier in the morning as a guide to Spot Height 404m. Tired but happy I passed over Loch Iochtair and descended the very steep slope, eventually finding a track which, I followed down to the hydro Road. I noticed the couple from Hull whom I had met earlier on top of Carrauntoohill making their way back to their tent which they had pitched a short distance from Loch Iochtair as I made my descent. Upon reaching the Hydro Road I crossed a fence and followed sheep-tracks and the river back to the initial trail I had used earlier that morning. Descending it alongside the waterpipe, I edged the farmer’s field with care before reaching the short track leading back to the derelict building, the road & car at Breanlee. The ‘Coumloughra Horseshoe’ with the addition of the Knockbrinnea tops and the hour spent on Carrauntoohill (waiting to take photos) took about seven and three quarter hours.
