Scrambled legs

Onzy's comment had reminded me that I'd been meaning to do the circuit of Lough Nambrackderg for some time.
One route up is the spur between Lough Nambrackderg and Lough Beg which is a good scramble, with a few unprotected moves on slippery rock.
Other options from this side are the gully on the south side of Lough Nambrackderg which looked easy enough as gully climbs go and possibly the easiest option, the spur to the south of Lough Beg. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1437/comment/18405/
