Distinctive hill on the way to Annascaul with views over Inch beach

Parked at Inch Beach 64398 00725 starC.

Headed left on the main road and took first right, signposted Lios Dana. This brings you onto the Dingle way, Head east towards Emlagh. Veer left at 64586 01080 starD. Some of this was incredibly wet for a path. Small gate leading on hillside before house at 65083 01379 starE. Work your way up the ridge where you’ll see an unusual cairn(?) on the ridge. Continue on up to Brickany while keeping to the left along some paths and sheep paths. I did try a more direct route a few times but had to back track as it was very wet where the ground levelled out between the spot heights.

Brickany itself is very interesting, i haven’t seen such a small cluster of these type of cairns anywhere else. The views from here are really great for such a low hill. All the way back up to Caherconree, across to Dromavally and Annascaul Lake and over Inch Beach.

I was going to Knockafeehane so headed westwards going down beside an old low wall. Came to a fence 62352 01885 starF that was really awkward to get over. I was expecting to go down alongside the forestry but it looked totally overgrown and impassible, maybe i missed something.

I went thru the open field and the ground was horrendous and was getting worse the further i went. I was about to turn around and go back up to see if i could figure out a different route when the house owner nearby came out a left me go thru his garden, thankfully. We’d a good chat, he had no problem, however, i was mortified. If someone has any info on that final bit i’d be interested to hear.

I went onto Knockafeehane, but if you just wanted to head back to Inch its a nice stroll along the quiet roads and laneways of a section of the Dingle Way... Linkback:
