Achill
by Kennyj  17 Nov 2016
Went up Slievemore Tuesday on a short trip to Achill,starting at the deserted village outside Dogort and heading NW for the shoulder across the heather which was quite deep in places but on good ground.Once on the shoulder its a handy hike to the top with a nice little scramble at F636082 B.Theres a small cairn at F644086 C with the summit trig a few hundred metres ahead.Unfotunately the cloud descended once we reached the summit so views were poor.Distance 6 km in a little over two hours.Hope to return during the summer months to make the most of the beautiful scenery this part has to offer.
