A pint to finish!
by Colin Murphy  31 May 2022
One of the advantages of starting or finishing an ascent from Gougane Barra, as it presents stunning views over the lough, especially on fine summer days, and you can also have pint if you've just descended here! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1448/comment/23528/
