Brandon Massif -The Ridge Walk
Sharron Schwartz and Martin Critchley have produced another classic Irish mountain video to add to their expanding collection. This is one of our great Wild Atlantic routes taking in the entire Brandon ridge and round by the Conor pass and down by An Bhinn Dhubh.
Let me tell you, filming Brandon is not easy. I have spent many an August over the course of ten years snatching the odd half decent day on Brandon, but Martin and Sharron managed to get the light needed to capture this elusive ridge. It's a super piece of work from start to finish, taking three days and nights to capture everything.
Let me quote Martin:
"In the second of our Wild Ireland film series, we visit the Dingle Peninsula, County Kerry, surrounded on three sides by the mighty Atlantic Ocean, with a spine that is rugged and mountainous. The Brandon Massif can lay claim to some of the most picturesque views of seascapes and glacial mountainscapes in Ireland, offering among the very best hillwalking experiences this island has to offer. We undertook a three day trek with two nights wild camping over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend in April 2015, in glorious weather conditions. Starting from Mount Brandon Hostel in Cloghane, we did a circular route covering over 40km, taking in 12 summits including Mount Brandon at 952m. With utterly face-slapping scenery in fine weather, this untamed and scenic corner of Western Europe, an integral part of the Wild Atlantic Way, is unsurpassed and unparalleled in its raw beauty.

A film of the highest quality.

Foardal: Beyond a shadow of a doubt

The French writer Maupassant used to say he had lunch in the Eiffel Tower every day because it was the only place in Paris that he couldn't see the thing. A similar view might be taken of Foardal,...

Foardal: Simple approach from NW
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy a week ago.
If you want to do this in isolation, the simplest route is from the car park at V882790, and then heading SE directly up the heathery slope for 1km. The summit itself is a broad heathery mound.
