New Comment: Unremarkable summit with nice views of the Borlin Valley
by ilenia  30 Dec 2020
Low level hike after Storm Bella. Still very windy with hail and sleet showers throughout the day. 
Parked in Kealkill at W04820 56498 A and headed north past Carriganass Castle and Lough Atooreen and then up the Kilgarvan road in the Borlin Valley. For a shorter walk you can drive up instead. 
I left the main road at W04866 62461 B, a 2 hour walk from Kealkill, to head across the open hillside. I reached the summit after an hour but it would take much less in nicer weather. I followed the fence most of the way up and handrailed it on the way down when the ground was too slippy. The ground is boggy which is pretty common in this area and the summit is unmarked.
I had tried to get here from Gougane Barra back in October but the ground was waterlogged and I stuck to the Beara Way instead. Nice to end an awful year by visiting my last Arderin Beg. Linkback:
