This is the decent to Mam Ochoige with view of Knocknahillon/Cnoc Na HUilleann mountain and Letterbreckaun/Binn Bhriocain mountain in distance.

On bottom left of photo on decent is cliffs. Walk along edge to right and search for a steep path/gully which swings to the left is hidden by overhanging rock. Walk down to the left of Loch Mham Ochoige.
[ Editor's Note: While what Silver says about the route to Mham Ochóige is possible, it isn't safe particularly in bad weather. One year a number of us saw a woman fall a serious distance above the Loch on the organised Maumturks Walk. Go towards the left of the ridge, starting from probably around where the pic was taken at a bearing of around 277 magnetic. ] Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/225/comment/1535/
