A nice 2 hour 7.5km loop including Shehy More and Loch na mBreac Dearg. The loop starts at W13435 60417 G (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/
