Sunset Hike
by Barry28213  27 Oct 2021
Hiked to the summit recently for sunset, taking in Knocksheegowna on route after parking at the entrance to Moanyarha bog. It was a fantastic hike in calm, mild conditions, with beautiful evening light and stunning views in all directions. Couldn't really ask for more!!
