Barcam is a little more challenging at the end of a traverse along the Laois / Offaly border from Wolftrap and the views on the day I climbed were expansive. For beak-baggers it is possible to head out from the SBW near Castleconor and do Stillbrook Hill, Carrolls Hill and Barcam returning via the SBW or for those really getting on with peak-bagging you can start at Wolftrap and just follow the traverse along the Laois/Offaly border all the way off Garraunbaun mountain (two cars needed) Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/504/comment/3011/
