This route takes in the two Corraun summits. On a good day it offers amazing views across Clew Bay to Croagh Patrick, Clare Island, The Nephin Begs and the summits of Achill Island. Also on decent from Corraun there are lovely summer views of the inlet below Corraun, with its waters appearing green and blue, with the white sand in swirling curves and patterns under the water. Keep an eye out for the turf-cutting famer in his mini-tractor who might give you a jaunt in the back loader for a few hundred metres! Also, beware of a potential wasp or bee hive in the summit cairn on Corraun Hill East Top
