Circuit of Lough Muskry
by TommyV  31 Oct 2018
This is a looped walk of Lough Muskry starting at a forest park entrance a few kilometers from Rosadrehid at R91744 28241 starA. Follow the forest track South for 2km before coming to a gate at R92408 26675 starB that leads out onto the Galtees. Once a suitable point is found to cross the river, climb the spur to Farbreega. From here it's a ridge walk around to Greenane, onto the unusual rock formations known as O'Loughlins Castle then on to Greenane West before descending to Lough Muskry. From here it's easy to follow the river North back to the gate at the forest trail, 2km along this leads back to the start point. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/39/comment/20120/
