A Cloon Horseshoe "mini Scavvy"?
Think none of the Scavvies so far have tackled the Dunkerrons, and the Cloon Horseshoe at its heart - Mullaghanattin, Beann, Finnararagh and then moving all the way on to Knocknagantee and swinging north to Teermoyle and Coomura. Did it a few weeks back and put a walk description up here, was thinking if there are a few who want to do it over the summer might go there again and show off this corner of the country. The only thing is parking is limited enough in Ballaghbeama, so numbers would be very limited, so can't really be some open Scavvy like the others. Furthermore its tough going, very remote, no easy way off the route if anyone gets tired, and its a long day, the last two summits are tough going. Last time I did it was over 8 hours and that was pretty flat out with one 10 minute stop, so fitness and ability to cover ground at a healthy pace required. Navigation skills handy, in case group needs to split and its misty around there. Would also be kinda weather dependent, really no point going there if there wasn't some chance of seeing down into the area behind Cloon Lake, and of course out to the Atlantic and over South Kerry. So if anyone interested, let me know...

Lackakeely: An easy bag after Mweelrea
magnumpig a day ago.
Mweelrea is a sweaty old climb (for me anyways) and if, like me, you feel that climbing it deserves bagging more than one peak, you should visit Lackaleely. Basically it's a small rise overlooking...

As mentioned by Bunsen7, the entrance to the windfarm is the best way to access this hill. Note that there are signs saying no unauthorized access but isn't that always the way. I did come across ...

No excuse not to come over here for a peek if you are at Truskmore, so that's what we did and it's worth it for the extra view.
