Shan Slieve Views Welcome
Shan Slieve receives no mention in mountainviews; if weighed in mountainviews' tokens, she wouldn't fill one of its canvas espadrilles.
Still, there is beauty to behold.
Firstly Shan Slieve isn't or at least barely is a top. Effectively she is Slieve Commedagh on your way home.
In bad vis though she can upset your beer plans by half an hour.
That written and if you can deal with some small, damp, dodgy cliffs, you will find yourself in places no one has been or has ever had any call to be, until you - yes you - are there.
During a dour and rushy descent it will dawn on you that you have fallen into a reverie that you will blame on boredom.
And that's how Shan Slieve gets you: she catches you off guard. In one blissful and baffling moment you discover you have stumbled on stage, the tea boy in front of a full house of snoozing vistas.
Deny yourself the standard descent off Slievenavaddy (hill of the dog, although probably abbreviated from hill of the red dog ie the fox - madra rua) and come off into Tullybrannigan (Brannigan's floodplain) by Hill of the Badger, Slievenabrock.
Behind you, the hill is pockmarked with silent springs sprouting Holy hollow hallowed holly. In front, the impenetrable head high rushes of the Tullybrannigan River. On the Northern horizon, Slieve Croob (Sliabh Craobh - branch/bough hill) distant, detached like a bold child sent to stand in the corner. Beneath you the silver sweep of Dundrum Bay to St John's Point.
Shan Slieve. Old Hill. Why not try it for a new view.

Caherbarnagh East Top: An unremarkable summit, worth the visit for the views.

The summit is unremarkable though easy to spot as it lies along the fence.

Caherbarnagh East Top: An easy stroll from Caherbarnagh.
David-Guenot a day ago.
There is a gate to cross when coming down from the cairn at the NE end of the main Caherbarnagh ridge (I found it was actually easier to cross the fence just right of the gate). There is a faint t...

Caherbarnagh East Top: A worthwhile addition.
David-Guenot a day ago.
This summit is easily reached from the main Caherbarnagh ridge and seems easy enough to get to from Curracahill as well. If coming from Caherbarnagh, best is to cross the fence just before the col...

Scarr North-West Top: Bird's eye view
Colin Murphy 6 days ago.
The descent from Scarr NW affords fine views of the Glenmacnass Waterfall and the expansive valley below it, far better than you'll get when you're at road level.
