A road runs through it
Short Summary created by jackill,  30 Jul 2012
Park on the roadside at V91700 54569 A and follow the Beara Way on a well marked track through the woods for 4.5 kms before the climb up the back of the valley under the Sugarloaf. The Beara way is shown by a series of yellow posts up to and past Lough Tobernavaha. Just past the lake the track begins to climb again slightly , as you approach Logh Keel turn north and climb the rounded face of Nareera to the summit.
The summit is a series of rocky shelves jutting sideways from the heather. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/394/comment/5153/
 
New Comment: Over Under Sideways Down
by IainT  6 Feb 2019
Just an addendum to muddyboots comment about the return trip from Sugarloaf if doing the round of the six tops (which deserves to become a classic). As said, it's definitely quicker and easier to retrace your steps rather than traverse, despite all the bumps. I could never resist a challenge though (and an arriving squall meant a bit more shelter might be appreciated) so did a gradually descending traverse round the head of the coum (Curraduff?) from the col west of Sugarloaf. In, out, round about, and with lots of intervening slabs and spurs to get across/round/over. Not recommended if time or effort are at a premium, but it does get you into some really nice nooks and crannies, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This picture is taken from the west end of Lough Keel, around 400m SW of Nareeva. All the complicated land west of Sugarloaf is apparently simplified into a ridge from this viewpoint. To the left is Nareeva, to the centre is Toberavanaha (west and probably higher) top, then the east top of Toberavanaha while peeping around the side of Toberavanaha is Sugarloaf hill far to the right. Hopefully someone will retake this picture on a day where some sun brings out the texture and shape of the land better.

You can reach Nareeva from the west if you want, though you will need to ask permission from the landowners at a house somewhere near V844 531 B. We asked and had a very pleasant reception, though in the end we approached from Sugarloaf. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/394/comment/521/

In Richard Mersey’s [The Hills of Cork & Kerry] there is a description of “ Sugarloaf Traverse” starting, naturally enough, from Sugarloaf. “But from the top westwards .. is as tough as anything in Beara. Many a cliff and gully bar your progress, and as your swing north the Caha lakes force you into more extensive diversions.” Nareeva is at the start of this area. While relatively tame itself, Richard Mersey describes the area north of it “This must be the wildest part of Beara”. Certainly, looking at the map the multiplicity of small lakes known as “Caha Lakes” must be testing to navigate through. Great place for a night assessment. Must go back.

Rocks and rolling on the Cahas

Well its taken 7 years Simon but looky here. Thats Lough Keel to the left.
Getting to Nareera has no doubt gotten easier as the Beara way has now been diverted through the mountain pass past Lough Tobernavanaha.
All around you though is red sandstone with slate bands thrown up , folded, bent , broken and fissured during the Amorican period 300 million years ago.
Taking an east-west direction they ripple slowly down ending in promontories and a splatter of islands.
Looking north you are invited by a vast wilderness of bog, rock and lake not tainted by the hand of man.
To the south west the tip of Bear island siting off Castletownbere pokes its head around the corner.
The deep-water harbour here was, up to the 19th century, much used by smugglers.
From 1922 to 1938,called Berehaven, it was one of three Treaty ports in the Irish Free State, sovereign bases maintained by the Royal Navy.
The nearby golf course had been part of the naval base . The tennis court there used to be where huge oil tanks stood. The sentry boxes still exist at the entrance to the golf course and at a jetty on the golf course. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/394/comment/6063/

A long walk in
by thomas_g  29 Jul 2012
Unfortunately it looks like the access at V91465 53888 C isn't an option any more - there are multiple no access signs and the gate is covered in barbed wire, just in case you didn't get the hint from the signs. As an alternative I parked on the roadside at V91700 54569 A (1 car) and followed the old Beara Way towards Sugarloaf (which is visible from miles away), which joins up with the track described by Jackill.
