Summit Cairn, very interesting

I climbed Brickany as part of a longer walk. I would recommend climbing from the east side as on a clear day the views of Inch Strand and Carrantuohill are masterful. To do this as a single walk you could park beside Inch graveyard. Then take the road behind the pub and walk 0.5km until you meet a fork in the road, take the left. You will then see an old gate where you can start the ascent. When you reach the summit you can admire Inch Strand and then walk North West until you reach the summit of Brickany. The Cairns are very interesting, I do not have any further information on what the hollow Cairns were used for. However to my knowledge this is the only example of this type of Cairn in the locality. A number of options to descend: If you wish to return to your car proceed west, there are a number of ways to get back the road. The Forestry path mentioned by "three5four0" really is very wet. Once on the road you could proceed to Annascual or take the summit directly in front of you. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/874/comment/14951/
