Anti-clockwise walk taking in the three hills of the Anierin plateau, Bencroy, Knockacullion and Slieve Anierin itself. Route contours underneath the cliffs of the plateau before returning along the top. Route shows a short detour south after Slieve Anierin in a fruitless quest for Wicklore's 'altar'!

Testing and tiring enough ground, lots of bog and soft patches.
