Interesting features on path
by Pepe  26 Jul 2018
Just north of the masts on Bran Scultair, about two hundred metres along the path to Carrigroe, what might be the remains of a cairn lurk in the undergrowth. This site is at the obvious high point about seven or eight metres off the path on your RHS as you go to Carrigroe, and lies against and almost partially beneath, the fence that separates the forestry on the eastern slopes from the path. If it is a cairn, it's in ruins now and well hidden by heather and grasses.
Another couple of hundred or so metres north, this time on the LHS of the path, is another interesting feature. A rocky outcrop (one of several but this appears to be the biggest and most impressive looking) juts out westward like the prow of a ship emerging from out of the mountain ridge. Well worth your time detouring a mere twenty steps or so out onto this outcrop. You will be rewarded with a stunning vista. It's like standing on the bow of an aircraft carrier with brilliants views N, S & W falling away beneath your feet. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/471/comment/19982/
