So far in my hill-walking life this ridge, from Ben Lugmore West across Ben Lugmore itself to Ben Lugmore East has been one of the highlights. Reading other comments, I can appreciate that that on a windy day or in mist my perception and my enjoyment might be very altered, but I would suggest to anyone who likes a good ridge and hasn't been here, do it. And you have the advantage of getting in a provincial and county top i.e. Mweelrea summit. And if your on a bagging quest, the Mweelrea mountains give you FIVE of Ireland's highest hundred. Bliss, pure bliss! Life doesn't get much better than this. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/38/comment/4197/
