Splendid isolation
by Colin Murphy  27 May 2013
Lackavrea Hill has it all - a well defined rocky summit, a great aesthetic, stunning views in all directions, good solid terrain - everything that is except height. As it falls just short of the 400m mark, it tends to be ignored by many baggers, which is to their loss, as on a clear, sunny day, which I had, it affords a panorama of views that are among the finest in the country. As it stands in isolation, no matter which way you turn you will be blessed with a wonderful vista - the mountains of Joyce country to the north, Lough Corrib to the east, the Maumturks to the west and perhaps best of all, the patchwork of loughs stretching as far as the eye can see to the south. Next time you're in the area, don't drive past - give yourself a treat. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/846/comment/14996/
