paulocon on Cnoc an Bhráca, 2010
by paulocon  27 Feb 2010
Having done the 4 tops of the Purples Range earlier in the day, I approached the turf path feeling tired but given that the day was still relatively young due to an early start, I took the zig zags up to the base of Strickeen Hill. I had been dreading the trudge through the bog but the overnight frost and snow meant that it wasn't anywhere near as bad as anticipated and the walk gave time to enjoy the exceptional view across to the reeks - it really is exceptional up there and feels very remote. Quite quickly, I was across to the snow-covered path up Cnoc an Bhraca. The path seems to diverge in a couple of places and after a couple of wrong choises, I met back with the path higher up the mountain and a last pull up the rocky upper end of the mountain gave way to the summit. Fantastic viewing point across to the eastern ridge - I was tempted to cross over to Cruach Mor for a look at the grotto but gave it a miss and headed for Cnoc na dTarbh.
