Loop Walk taking 6.5 hrs including Douce and Doughil
by Cobhclimber  1 Jan 2015
Shehy More plus others
Round Walk including Shehy More 546m, SM west top, Douce 476m, Doughill 471m.
Total distance 15.2 Km, total ascent 643m, these calculated, time taken 6.5 hrs.
Car at W153 621 C, Walk up grit track to Lough Nambrackderg and on to Shehy More W152 600 D through long grass with hidden hummocks. Lovely views N to Paps, W to Bantry Bay. Continue west over to Shehy More SW top. Drop down to the road at W131604 E, through bog, tracks and fields and head up a nice climb to Douce. Continue on rougher terrain to Doughill. I went east from here down to farm road at about W123633 F (marked as a normal road on my map), not a good idea, steep and very rough ground. Better to loop around, maybe to north first. Walk back out road back to car. This last took about 1hr 10mins. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/17783/
