Picture: Reedy Lough beside Ram's Hill
 
The great Caha expanse
by Colin Murphy  17 May 2011
Killane was the fourth top in a long day's walking, which began with the Sugarloaf, Sugarloaf West Top, Nareera and then crossed the huge swathe of largely flat but fascinating landscape which is approximately 8 sq km and marked on the OS map by Glenlough Mt and Ram's Hill (which are not MV listed summits). the area is little visited one suspects as it holds no summits for bagging, nevertheless it is worth the excursion. It is a mixture of small rises, boulders, marsh, rocky ridges and countless small loughs. Unfortunately on the day we made the south north traverse the weather turned nasty and denied us much of the view, but not before we encountered such gems as the small reedy lough seen in the accompanying pic, which was immediately to the west of Ram's Hill, about 3km to the SW of Killane Mountain.
