Hare Vista
Not immediately obvious, until stepped out past the small cairn marker atop Hare’s Gap, and then, a great empty amphitheatre, bowls out below us. With our few steps advance, and the corresponding loss of shelter, a sheer and icy breeze as scathing as a wet tea towel slapped across bare legs, (for those in the know), winded us in our admiration. Immediately right, a craggy outcrop, stands in the way of Bearnagh’s North Tor. Stone steps camouflaged in their equally stony surround, snake up deceptively lazy-like, left of the crag, and Mourne wall. But, being with the wrong dance partner for that jig, I followed my leader, begrudgingly off to the left. In my strop, the sun played a magnificent trick on the sudden cloud, and lasers the colours of rainbow, fell like showers for all too brief a moment. I’ve seen this game played on a camera, but not in front of me, with my own eyes. An oddity, possibly simulated by the backdrop of interspersed sunshine, cloud, teary eyes, sheared with the wind, and falls in blood sugar. By the time one gets the backpack off, and the camera out, the scene shifts, annoyingly so, and we fall for it every time. Don’t, will you? Soak it in, for the all too brief a span, the magic happens in. We step back to catch our breath and diffuse our prickly choice of choreography. One wants height, the other breadth, ye olde eternal chestnut. In fact what we both needed but only I possessed, was chocolate. So we ate

The Loop walks here are well signposted, it's a great idea to go out onto each headland.

Buckaun East: Cliffy north edge.

This is a picture of Buckaun East taken from the valley below.. Obviously the safest way to go up and down this is to the left or south of the ridge.
