Caherconree and Bautregaum
by Singo  2 Jan 2011
On 01/01/11 using David Herman's Hill Walkers Kerry, I took the hike up Caherconree and Baurtregaum. For anyone using the book please note at the very start you walk up to the end of the path, through a gate bearing a sign in relation to mountain safety. There is no need to climb over the "second gate on the left" that he mentions.

This is a really nice hike up the Derrymore River. Unfortunately on the day both summits were shrouded in mist. But it was obvious on the way up that on a clear day the views would be spectacular. From Scragg we continued north, descending through heather, to pick up the Dingle Way. As Herman says this is tiring and monotonous but the views were good. This is definitely a hike worth coming back to do again. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/17/comment/6188/
