Well worth a visit

Beg is a handy wee dander from the Brandy Pad. For me, it was a stop off point before heading up the punishing incline for Cove. First time seeing the very impressive coachroad abd I have to say I felt uneasy just looking down into it - fair play to all those who have scrambled up it. Well worth a visit.

A similar view to Ricky K's showing the severity of the scree slope forming the Coachroad. Bearnagh cuts an imposing figure in the background, yet somehow seems incredibly inviting to all who view her. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/297/comment/1332/

Up the annalong valley and climbed the devils coachroad. Good steep climb/ scramble through the devils coachroad and great view at the top. Back over cove mountain. Showery day with driving rain at times making the coachroad all the more interesting. Not a route for novices or young children/ groups Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/297/comment/555/
