Last of the Comeraghs
by Kennyj  25 Jul 2016
Got a chance to return to the magical Comeraghs and set about tackling my last summit in the area-Carrignagower,parking at Curraheen S307154 B and followed the waymarked White trail to the Gap,following the fence SE up the steep slope to where if veers SW allowing you to avoid a tricky vertical outcrop before returning to the fence and making the long climb up the grassy slope to the summit plateau,marked by a cairn.From here I followed the Coum edge around to the cairn at S319122 C with good views of the boolas below.I headed NE from the cairn in order to find easy ground to descend and on reaching around 570 height I contoured back W towards the boolas or Coum Larthair lochs before stopping for lunch.From the lakes I picked up the purple waymarked trail back to the car.Distance 12.5 kms,time 3.5 hours with stops.This is a lovely circular walk offering a good degree of difficulty on both ascent and descent as well wilderness and beautiful countryside,highly reccommended.
