Try a new approach
by muddyboots  23 Feb 2017
A nice 2 hour 7.5km loop including Shehy More and Loch na mBreac Dearg. The loop starts at W13435 60417 starA (room 2 cars) and follows a farm track up onto Shehy More. Also for those including Shehy Beag. There is an occupiers notice so I proceeded quickly.The advantage of this route is that you ascend Shehy More and as you descend you have beautiful views of the lake. Follow the track from the lake to the road and road walk the scenic road back to your car. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/18846/

TrebleRed on Shehy More, 2006
by TrebleRed  2 May 2006
I have been wondering why Sheehy Mor wasnt on the site for a while! I can see 'Carrigmount' from my kitchen window, its an impressive view. I have climbed it once with the Dunmanway walkers. We went a different route to that mentioned elsewhere. From the Bantry line follow the signs for 'Riding'. This leads eventually to a small farm with a stable of horses. With their permission you can head up a boggy track towards the lake and beyond. The other route sounds better to be honest. Lovely views at the top as mentioned of all of South West Cork and up towards Kerry too. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/2322/
