The Reeks & it's Ridges!
Just a quick note to say thanks to Conor and Peter for your thoughts on the Reeks. I did split the walk into two and still didn't do the Bones and Beenkeragh, but hey, that just gives me a reason to go back down again in July and experience this wonderful place again!

Did Cruacha Mor to Cnoic na Toinne on Friday and was thankful that I made the call to do this, as it was the best weather of the weekend and the wind and cloud didn't come in until nearing Knocknapeasta. Got the attached photo on this walk and was one of the best of the weekend. Went back for Caher (and yes, the West top) on Saturday, before finishing up with Carrauntohill and completing my round of the county tops.

Cronin's Yard is great place to base yourself from and I'm really getting to like these trips to the Kingdom! Only one these classic ridges left to do now.

As mentioned by Harry Goodman, it's possible to drive along Belmore forest for almost two kilometers as far as a black forestry gate. There is also a standard gate here on the right giving access ...

Brougher Mountain: A quick bag.

Nothing much to add to the comments already. Drove most of the way up from the North side of the hill to within 450 metres of the trig point. Nothing to recommend to anybody who is looking to get ...

Geo's directions are spot on. At the aforementioned Coilte forest entrance there is a sign staing no unauthorized vehicles beyond this point as the gate may close at any point. However as the Lazy...

Collaborative entry Last edit by: Peter Walker a week ago.
Relatively recent history has liberated Camlough Mountain from the bonds of the military: some metallic paraphernalia remains high on its slopes but if one puts that aside it's a cracking little e...
