Out and back to Bentee in 40 knots of wind!

A long planned trip to the SW this Friday and Saturday for johnstna and I saw us change plans a number of times. Plan A was the southern half of the Glenbeigh Horseshoe. Looking at windguru a week out, it was clear that this was going to be a big ask - 59 knots forecast - that's 110 km/hr!!

So plan B was hatched, a route over Eagle Hill and Mullaghbeg.

Having just been almost blown off Cnoc an Bhraca, we mulled over this on Friday night in Cahirciveen and decided on a Plan C. Basically this involved identifying a hill, any hill, in the area, we could get up and down safely - in fact we got three low ones in the end.

Johnstna's new anemometer had its first outing too - toy of the weekend!

So to Bentee; the track follows the Bentee Loop, quite well marked - out and return. The time shown here is wrong - the trip took about 1.15 with a climb of about 350m.
