The Rocky trail

Having previously climbed Abbey Hill and Slieve Elva, last Thursday we decided to make the trip to Slievecarron.
Armed with an old two inch map of the Burren we parked our car just off the N67, where the green road joins the Carron road. We noticed a track on this map which appeared to go all the way to Slievecarron from where our car was parked.
Well, of course, we allowed for the fact that tracks are not exactly tracks in the Burren.
Having parked the car, M3117010180 F, we crossed the road and entered
a field via a gate.
We headed south for Slieve Oughtmama (833) , then on to Hillfort with Turlough Hill very near us over to the west.
At that stage we observed, further south ,the large Cairn on Slievecarron and calculated that we had another hour and half to get there. Arrived at 17.00 hrs , having left at 14.00 hrs.Walking on a mixture of limestone and patches of grass ,my companion was fascinated by the formation of the limestone. For the return, we almost retraced our steps except we avoided the climb up Slieve Oughtmama, deciding wisely to walk below on the westerly grassy patches and from there we joined the Carron road where we walked NE for ½ mile to our car. Walking in the Burren can be tiring because of the concentration required when walking on the Limestone.,so some refreshment was called for down on the waterfront at Newquay.
