Hello Its good to be back!

After an operation that quite literally left me with half the knee I used to have, with over 5 months off work and a lot of physiotherapy later I was finally given the OK to return to the hills. So it was off to Dingle for my mountaineering clubs easter meet for some quality ale, Guinness and hopefully a clutch of new hills.

We started our route for Brickany in Anascaul, following the Dingle Way to the road junction at Maum (the D.W. leaves the road here and follows a lane) . At roughly 61910 01906 A there is a locked gate, climb over and follow a wet forestry track, which shortly turns right, then left and right again, following the edge of the plantation bringing you to the edge of the forest and a rough and faint path & fence. Cross and follow the fence - along an old wall boundary - (on the right hand side) all the way to the top, recross the fence to the summit cairn, well several cairns probable built with the remains of what looks like a ruined chambered cairn.

Return the way of ascent, we continued on along the Dingle Way to Inch Strand for some Ice Cream on the beach where the temp reached 29 degrees, not bad for April!

The directions for this route were given to me by a local farmer, he also said I could approach along the tracks on the north-west side of the hill as well, but that there was a lot of electric fencing there. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/874/comment/6493/

Viewed from the west this small summit looks well rounded if overshadowed. It's very visible from Inch Strand. There's a forest to the west of the top, just visible on the left of the pic, which could provide access from around the junction at Q61920186 B. (If you need to park this could be tricky.).

In this photo, taken from 6k west on Knocknacree, the darker purplish summit is surrounded by higher summits, Moanlaur to the right skyline and part of Caherconree to the left. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/874/comment/3828/

Summit Cairn, very interesting

I climbed Brickany as part of a longer walk. I would recommend climbing from the east side as on a clear day the views of Inch Strand and Carrantuohill are masterful. To do this as a single walk you could park beside Inch graveyard. Then take the road behind the pub and walk 0.5km until you meet a fork in the road, take the left. You will then see an old gate where you can start the ascent. When you reach the summit you can admire Inch Strand and then walk North West until you reach the summit of Brickany. The Cairns are very interesting, I do not have any further information on what the hollow Cairns were used for. However to my knowledge this is the only example of this type of Cairn in the locality. A number of options to descend: If you wish to return to your car proceed west, there are a number of ways to get back the road. The Forestry path mentioned by "three5four0" really is very wet. Once on the road you could proceed to Annascual or take the summit directly in front of you. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/874/comment/14951/
