(See Dooish/Saggartnadooish for previous legs of route). A fairly simple & sedate descent south from the summit area of Saggartnadooish brought me to the valley floor. In keeping with the previous two legs of the walk the terrain was a mixture of rocks, small peat hags and long & wiry mountain grass. Shortly after reaching the valley floor I crossed the western end of Derrybeg stream before starting my ascent of the mountain via its northern slope. Tiredness, most probably due to the intense heat, was taking its toll and I found the steep ascent more difficult than it should otherwise have been. Nevertheless, I reached the top without mishap. The fairly flat summit area has little to distinguish it and again the true summit is not immediately obvious. There is a mini cairn (3 stones) on what appears to be one of the ‘heights’ and GPS reading here was 553m, two metres short of OS map’s suggested height. From the summit I took a bearing of 171degrees to take me to the track below Astellan waterfall. This descent from Dooish SE Top is well over 2K. I reached the waterfall after what appeared to be an interminable length of time – again heat exhaustion possibly played a part. There wasn’t a great deal of water cascading down the falls but I got the idea that it might be something special in wetter weather. I was going to trek across and drop into Astellan Burn but decided to risk the descent to the right (east) of the actual waterfall. This is extremely steep, not for the feint hearted and requires a degree of scrambling (minus the rocks) and great care to be taken. Had to drop about 3 metres at one stage when footholds ran out. Despite this managed to reach the bottom without mishap. Crossed a meadow and found a shallow part of Glenbeagh River just west of Sturricknagower IB99502 18426 – 90m, making for building alongside the trail, which I presume is a Bothy (maybe not?). From here it is a pleasant walk of around 3.5 K, flat at first then a climb of about 190m back to the starting point. The entire route was just over 16.2K, tiring in the heat, but a thoroughly enjoyable walk with wonderful scenery – recommended! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/350/comment/2344/
