Climbed Garraunbaun after summiting Farbreague from Clashroe. I had orginally liked the appeal of the road that goes very nearly to the top but the enterprise mentioned below has this road closed with two gates and a fence either side as well as a sign stating no access authorised personnel only. From Clashroe the forest around the valley between Farbreague and Garraunbaun (marked on the OSI 1:50k map) has been completely 'harvested' and new forest placed lower in the valley. On the positive side wildlife was good. I saw two groups of young deer (5 in total) and large amounts of frog spawn as well as a wide range of plants and birds.
