Route takes in Aghla More, Aghla Beg South and Aghla Beg, beginning from the head of Altan Lough.

Time prevented taking in the gloriously named 473m peak, Ardloughnabrackbaddy. In any event, this could feasibly be reached from any of the three sides of the roughly triangular walk - I was most tempted from the col between Aghla More and Aghla Beg South.

A river must be crossed at both the beginning and end of the route; this is best crossed either on the stepping stones (5 inches underwater today) which I used on the outward leg, or at the point where the river emerges from Altan Lough, which I used on the return.

The lower reaches of the walk are very wet but it improves as you gain height - after heavy rain this could be purgatorial.
