Coming down off the Brandon ridge at Folach na Marbh, a bizarre new road is to be found between Loch na mBan and the head of the Cloghane River. In poor visibility it can be found due south of Q463082 B which is on the SW ridge of Gearhane. It is very well constructed with banks and drainage ditches and after a few zigs and zags joins the much older and attractive track down to the farmhouse at Mullach Bhéal. Is a wind farm or forestry planned for this beautiful and remote hillside? Hopefully not. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/37/comment/2640/
