Twelve Bens Mountain Lodge
have just recently spent a week staying at the Twelve Bens Mountain Lodge right in the heart o fthe Glencoaghan horeshoe. This was an old family home which has been renovated to a high standard by a local sheepfarmer (Eamon) who owns part of the hills. You can literally step out of the door onto the hillside or spend countless minutes staring at the changing faces of the hillsides as the weather moves through.
I see this as supporting the local population who own and earn thier living from the land, often for little return. Eamon has an intimate knowledge of local history, wildlife, weather,farming issues and more which he is more than happy to share. If you are thinking of heading to this wonderful part of the country can i urge you to check out this accomodation which can be acessed through www.ireland.ie/west

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.
