Easy, pleasant walk in a remote area

Cappaghabaun East, as others have described, is a little bit off the beaten track - having said that, the East Clare Way crosses the route several times! Again, as others have written, the views are likely to be impressive for such a small hill and yet I also saw more cloud and fog than views.
Yet, something about the place lends itself to grey cloud and hazy views - the bleakness of the landscape comes into its own. I recommend taking the route this direction as its easier to locate the dolmen (see photo) and descending to the road from the summit is easier than ascending, due to the long grass and bog cuttings.
