Peak the highest mountain in Mayo and Connacht
by Liamgavin  3 Jan 2018
Mweelrea Mountain (Cnoc Maol Réidh) is the highest mountain in Connaught (814m), rising from the bowels of wild Atlantic seascape in dramatic upland ruggedness. The mountain offers one of the finest panoramic views in Ireland on a good day although often shrouded in mist and mystery, the walk is always best undertaken with a guide. This year the walk will commence on the North shore of Doolough and through the gap in the loughs to the natural Ramp path amid house sized boulders. The airy glacial cliff edges pitch steadily to the first peak of Ben Bury, then skirting the horseshoe to the exposed summit. The narrow split ridge leads north eastward with surges of long and sometimes steep declines onto Tonatleva hill and a benign forest track guiding us tea-wards and bun-bound to the fabulous Delphi valley. (15km track with 1,120m total climb). Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/34/comment/19826/
