The long easy ridge from Quarry Hill car park Q83642 07816 B passing over Barnageehy and the Iron Man, push my toes into the sandy beach surface of Glanbrack Mountain, the short sharp climb to Baurtregaum and the final jewel of Castle Hill. Castlemaine harbour reflecting silver spring sunlight , laying back in the short heather, my eyes tracing the shore out beyond Dingle bay , for a moment truly a King in His Castle.
