I started my walk at W 042 851 B at a yellow cottage with a very friendly elderly lady, who even gave me some advice; "Follow the path untill you come to the sheep wire and then onto the mountain". It was an easy enough ascent to the summit of Crohane. I then followed magnetic bearing 138 to Carrigawaddra. Use this bearing only to determine where the peak is, as it is not possible to exactly follow the beeline unless you bring waders with you. It is a low-ish peak which has a terraced north west side, some mini scrambles to be found here. Then onto Crohane West Top. Again very wet ground, so you'll have to stay on the higher parts which unfortunately will make the journey a bit longer. After that I had to dog-leg it back to the slopes of Crohane. To skirt around the mountain you have to go up again to approx. 450-500m as the ground is quite rough and very steep on the north west side. Then back to the yellow cottage.
