Diminutive yet shapely
by ciarraioch  16 May 2012
A surprisingly tedious trudge west from the saddle with Sliabh na nGabhar brings you to the diminutive but shapely peak of An Starraicín/Slievenalecka. Great views onto Loch a' Dúin to the right and Loch Chom Colláin to the left and across onto Brandon. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/599/comment/6803/
