I reached the East top as the last of the five separate tops making up Mweelrea, dropping from Ben Lugmore on a defined track with nothingness just to my left with the drop into the corrie and a river impossibly far below. Ben Creggan and Ben Gorm disappear as drop to the col with the E top, from here it is a short rise to a broad grassy area and a small cairn on the East Top - I took some time to relax here in the strong sunshine. Again there are big views to match this big hill - to the Bens and Mamturks - to Achill Island - amazing views along the back wall of the corrie with peaks rising sharply and along the sheer side of the E top towards Doo Lough. As walk easily along the broad top there is a gentle desent and the best views are to Ben Creggan, Ben Gorm and Barraclashcarne, all across Doo Lough. The further i moved along the top here the fuller and more impressive the views of the corrie became, but there was strong competition from the hills across Doo Lough. There are a couple of little upright stones at the end of the top before start dropping down. I didn't drop straight down the obvious shoulder heading N for Doo Lough but a little further to the E - this was pretty steep with all sorts of rock and grass and i did contour around towards the shoulder anyway. The entire descent is pretty unrelenting and there are some quite steep parts towards the bottom which need care, before coming back to the shores of the lough where i filled my hat with water again to try and cool down. A short walk brought me back to the car but still looking back up towards where i had been for the last 6 or 7 hours. Without a doubt one of the best days walking i have yet had the pleasure to experience in Ireland. There were very few people about on the mountain and no one else on the tops of Ben Lugmore - those that were about just seemed to be interested in the top of Mweelrea, they just don't know what else they could ahve experienced for little extra effort!
