A worthy 500
by thomas_g  29 May 2017
Gortnagan Beg turned out to be my 500th peak. The bog was dryish, the rain threatened but waited until I got back to the car and the midges had other targets; what more could you ask for.
The peak proper seems to be further E than indicated on the OSI map. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1145/comment/19530/
