Cruach Mháthain/Mount Eagle Circuit Part I

Parked at Ionad na mBlascaodi (Blasket Centre) at Q315 006 B. Headed back (north) towards the main road, walking right across it to take the little road by the Peacock Hostel. Followed this little road (you are now on the Dingle Way), NNW, sticking with it (and leaving the Dingle Way which continues on straight) as it takes a sharp ninety degree turn to the right. Kept going to the end of the tarmac road, where you pass through a gate, to reach the green road marked on Map OSI 70. This road brought us up to the flanks of the mountain to Q328 024 C (point 260m) where lie the remains of the fake village built for David Lean's classic 'Ryan's Daughter'. A straight slog upward here to enjoy the fabulous views from the summit. We then headed down in a SSE direction towards the mast on the Mám Clasach saddle (where crosses the Ventry-Dunquin road)Q340 015 D. We struck off for Mount Eagle/Sliabh an Iolair from here... see continuation under Mount Eagle Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/813/comment/6583/
