Fire devastation sadly now in evidence
by Fergalh  14 Jun 2021
Followed Ciarraiochs excellent route up and down to the col and from thence to the summit. Sadly some of the fire devastation is much in evidence around the bridge. Would like to add this is a tricky hill as there is a lot of water on and off the slopes it so really only for the experienced hillwalkers and expect some heartache as it is not easy whatsoever. Although echoing conor74's comments worth it for the views which are splendid in all directions Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1108/comment/23174/
