Lavagh Beg is about half an hour from the summit of bigger neighbour of Lavagh More, dropping down to the col and then a steep climb over fairly easy grassy ground. The summit has three little tops interspersed with loughs of different sizes and a cairn. As with neighbour there are stunning views out to the Atlantic, with the Arran islands being particularly prominent. The recent development of windfarms in the area is very visible and does detract to some degree from the general wilderness feeling accompanying walking in the Bluestacks. I have descended steeply into the Reelan valley on a bearing of 50' towards a yellow roofed building over quite slippy ground, picking up a stream and following it down to a fence and then a road which leads back to the old schoolhouse after 2.5 miles of further walking. I have also decended back to the col with Lavagh More and dropped down to contour around the hill towards the river,forest and the waymarked way which travels down from the Struell Gap - reach road and short walk back to old school house. Part of a fantastic circuit which rates among the best walking i have had the pleasure of doing in this country. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/196/comment/2339/
