(part 2) From the summit the ridge continues for another few kms, dropping down to the S end of Lough Feeagh. I took a more direct descent to the E down into the Glennamong river valley from near the summit. This was pretty steep over wet ground and was a mixture of running, slipping and sliding and putting legs into holes - not recommended unless you are in a hurry. I made for the S boundary of the forest and followed the stream down to the river, over some very wet ground. The Glennamong river can be crossed at a bridge which is presumably part of the forestry operations. It is then a walk of over 5 km on forestry road and then quiet lanes,over the Srahmore river and back up into Letterkeen Wood where I had parked the day before. I camped down at the spot near to the bothy as mentioned in the comment for Glennamong - a cracking spot beside the river and plenty of wood to make a good fire. A fantastic horseshoe walk of over 20 km through some beautiful and remote hills with total solitude for company. I will be back. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/309/comment/1920/
