A dark but beautiful day. Parked in a field supplied by a friendly farmer. He recommended that we leave it there with the keys as he might want to go to Baile Bhuirne for Porter. He seemed genuinely disappointed when we informed him that there was very little left. Left car at W195 892 E and went for Stoukeen. There is a stoney path which was helpful as the ground was quite wet. Lovely pull up here all the same. This mountain looks deceivingly easy. Its majesty is most apparent from Croohigs crossroads near where O Sullivan Beara and his men once camped out (Hence the reason for all the local O Suileabhains) or even up further towards Macroom. From the peak at Stoukeen its a lovely stroll across to Caherbarnagh and Glanaprehane. Not all the pictures came out as I am still learning to use my camera but views extended from the Reeks ridges to Musheramore and beyond. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/135/comment/2275/
