Starting in Fanore at the start of the Blackhead trail at M14638 09273 F, this route follows an old cattle trail as far as Blackhead. Leave the trail at M15492 11648 G heading south east to the impressive Caherdoonish fort at M15796 11412 H. before leaving the trail to ascend Doughbraneen passing Caherdooneerish Stone Fort on the way. After taking in the fort, continue heading south east for about 1.5km to the cairn at spot height 314. The trig point on Gleninagh lies another kilometer south east from here.

From Gleninagh, there is a short descent east before a short climb up to Cappanwalla . The summit here is quite broad with lots of semi walls that look like horse jumps which can never be used due to the not horse friendly terrain underfoot!! At the south east side of this summit at M20553 07226 I lies an unusual distraction. An alien like structure that has some electronics inside it, I assume it's some sort of weather station! From here carefully pick your way down to the road, use the Castle as a reference point and aim to hit the road to the left of the castle. Once on the road take the first right and after about 200 meters look for a gap in the wall at M22033 07073 J. Follow this trail in to Ballyvaughan for some well earned dinner and maybe even a pint!
