Vantage Point for the Plains of Magunihy
by ciarraioch  26 Nov 2011
From most vantage points in East and Mid Kerry, this minor summit delineates the western edge of the Reeks, being visible all the way to the county bounds. Inspired by madfrankie's instructions below, and being assured by the BBC weather projection of a gap in the weather, we struck off up the Hydro Road at 11.10 on 31st October 2011. We veered off to the left at the point that the hydro road turns right at V777 868 C, heading diagonally or north east up fairly rough and rocky ground. After a short haul, we reached the top of the first ridge, an excellent example of a moraine. Between this and the saddle connecting Skregbeg to her taller cousins, lies a very wet and swampy area, with care being needed in fording the swollen streams. No sooner were we onto solid ground than we were drenched by the last cold and gusty shower of the morning. Having gained the saddle, we headed left and dripping wet towards the rocky summit. A cairn lies at the top, partially overgrown with grass, possibly indicating a prehistoric origin. The views are excellent out to Dingle Bay and across the Plains of Magh O gCoinchinn (latterday barony of Magunihy), the ancient 'tuath' that stretched from the source of the Blackwater to Castlemaine harbour. Overall around two hours and twenty minutes. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/321/comment/6636/
