Route over Knockbrack, Moanlaur, Beenduff and Lack Mountain, this track builds on Simon3's track 2007, but detours on the return to take in Lack Mountain.
Inclement weather meant I deferred my intended route over Baurtregaum and Caherconree and stayed lower down - not a great day for visibility and these hills were plenty high enough. My first time in Slieve Mish and in the mist GPS was essential - The ground is quite complex and although the route looks straightforward there are navigational pitfalls in poor weather - not least an apparent plethora of other peaks not listed on MV which can confuse the unwary!

Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 3h 10m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
