This is a fine walk visiting two outliers of the Galtys as well as the two Greenane summits. It makes use of an exciting track high above Lough Boreen on Galtybeg on the return. The route is a mixture of track and heather walking, and there are no difficult sections. (However there is a lot of accumulated ascent as you ascend and descend the various hills). There are great views of the main Galty range from new angles, as well as views into the lakes below.
