Punching Above Its Weight
by Aidy  7 Mar 2017
I was in this area on Sunday, and had no real plans for hill walking as I was expecting relentless rain and a lack of views on hills covered with low cloud. Instead I was planning to drive along the coast, dashing from the car for a few photos when weather allowed. It turned out to be a beautiful day, and Croaghmuckros looked so enticing as I looked over at it from Muckros Head that I decided I would take a walk up using the lazy way - the access track on the northern side up to the mast at the summit.

Its a short, easy walk on that route, and a small hill, but it punches well above its weight in terms of views. Magnificent in every direction, with Slieve League, the Dartry Mountains, nearby Crownarad, and the stunning coastline all vying for attention. Crownarad and its SW Top could be easily done on the same day. Fantastic little hill. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1181/comment/18857/
