A relatively easy walk without too many rocky sections but rewarding views from the 618 metre summit. We started from the Car Park for the Killary Harbour (Grid Ref 856 624 C) and made our way up the river to the Western Way, but a more sensible way would be to access the Western Way from near (870 620 D)! Left the Western Way at 847 619 F and made our way to the ridge via (851 607 G). Followed the ridge down then up to the summit. Excellent views of the Benchoonas, Kylemore Lough and Lough Fee withy Knockbrack in the distance (see photo). Easiest way down was to follow the line of the sheep fence down the ridge then cut across near the deserted village buildings to access the road at (874 618 H) on the west of the river. Taking it easy and with lots of stops it took us about 7 hours to do the 10 kms! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/246/comment/2409/
