Easy hike with the added bonus of some great scenery
by Damian120  21 Aug 2016
A nice climb that is definitely not too taxing but at the same time offering up some great scenery of the Burren. Most of the hike is over the traditional Karst limestone that this an intrinsic part of the north Clare region. Some great elevated and unique views of Corcomroe Abbey at the rear of the hill Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1009/comment/18615/
