Pondering Cloonaghlin
Simon. Thanks for that. I started thinking about a route after viewing your track 2457 (Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/track/2457/ ). Your notes got my appetite whetted. I've read the MV material on the mountains surrounding the lakes in question and its all very interesting. I took a look at Google Maps and "drove" up both the northern and southern roads into the coum. The northern road seems quite narrow, and bereft of parking spaces. I got it into my head (particularly noting Peter Walker's contributions, Joss Lynam's short southern circuit and A Hendroff's book) that it would make more sense to park on the southern side of the lakes. Which brought me to the question: could I save a lot of hassle by crossing between the lakes (subject to necessary permissions of course)? I particularly noted remarks by you and others re the wildness of the country between Cnoc Breasail, An Bhinn Lair and Coumcathcun, which is, for me, a consummation devoutly to be wished. Any route I plan will have to include Cnoc Breasail as I cannot leave it behind (having already done the Cloon Circuit). May I say that I love the planning stage...its almost as good as the act itself, and the endorphined calm that follows.

Anglesey Mountain: Great Carlingford views from a so-so top
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy a week ago.
There is enough space to park one car at 100 167, just on the edge of a wood around a sharp u-bend. Proceed north for 100m before turning NE up a gentle slope, although the terrain is treacherous ...
