Lovely walk in the heart of the Burren
by Aongus  5 Aug 2020
I did the circuit Mullaghmore, Slieve Roe and Knockanes on Bank Holiday Monday. Lovely circuit in an amazing landscape with great views. I followed the Blue route from Loch an Gealláin to summit of Mullaghmore. While the Blue route drops left of Mullaghmore and returns to the start I continued on the short trip to Slieve Roe. A bigger drop to the next col followed by a good pull brought me to Knockanes. I went cross country and picked up the Blue route again under Mullaghmore.

This walk is mainly on exposed limestone, some very short and easy scrambles are required to overcome a few steps so care is needed!

A 3 hour walk to savour. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1286/comment/20839/
