A high point

We wandered up the pleasant Red and White Walks to Mullaghmeen to the accompaniment of the falling leaves of autumn. We left the White Walk at the unmarked but wide path to the high point, pausing to admire the myriad of butterflies flitting about the blackberries at the edge of the summit clearing. Pausing briefly at the cairn, we continued down the other side, passing through a forest filled with an abundance of different mushrooms. We followed the interesting Booley Hut trail, with its handrail on the steepest bit, and examined the hut, whose walls were built against a limestone cliff. From the hut, we returned the Red Walk and returned to the car park Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1050/comment/6115/
