A Remote Area
by Aidy  20 May 2016
Reached from Croveenananta, before proceeding to Croaghugagh. The walk over from Croveenananta was short, but not as easy it looked, with the low point on the col between the two being extremely boggy and very difficult to find a route through. i found the skeleton of a sheep there which probably got stuck and died in the mire. The top was broader and flatter than it looked from a distance too, with peat hags and deep heather to get through, but it was a short walk, and the views were great, around the surrounding peaks. For a short walk in fairly low hills, there was also a real feeling of being far from civilisation in this remote area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/812/comment/18538/
