Coming south from Seefin this megalithic cairn at around 670m marks the start of a sharp descent along the ragged fence to Barnamaddra Gap and standing stone.

On the occasion that I did it, the wind was extraordinary. It hadn't been very noticeable at all on Seefin or points north of there, but here it must have been near to the tumbling point.

Safely returned I sought an explanation from maps. The wind was from the SW and the slope stretching from Seefin to Coumaraglin and Farbreaga is a hugh natural ampitheatre. The wind wasn't that strong either on the plateau top or at road level but entering this mostly treeless valley is scooped and concentrated on the ridge near the cairn. Since the SW is the commonest direction for wind, this must happen fairly often, so I would be interested if anyone else has encountered such a phenemenon.
