An Enormous Blob of Rock
by CaptainVertigo  22 Apr 2014
I approached Cnoc Breasail from the south (en route from An Bhinn Lair) as part of an extended circuit of Cloonaghlin/Namona. It presents as an enormous blob of solidified rock with its fat arms cradling Lough Coomavanniha, soon to be swallowed. Getting down to the Lough requires considerable care and one would be well advised to avoid the cliffs by following the steep line of the fence. Eating just beneath Breasail was somewhat surreal. There was nobody about, nor did I see any signs that humans had ever been there apart from the fence from Bhinn Lair. The ascent from the Lough was not difficult and the views from the summit were top class. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/293/comment/16028/
