While not going over any MV summits this track will give access to both Carnavaddy and Clermont Cairn. It would be one of the lesser used routes in the area but a quality walk. The walk starts from the car park of the Lumpers pub (which has showers and serves food). The first and last stretches are along very quiet country roads before going on to stony farm and then open mountain tracks.
On reaching the six large yellow boulders of the poc fada route you can, should you choose, turn right (east) and follow the yellow boulders to the top of Carnavaddy. Staying on this track you will continue with the boulders in the other direction to start point of the poc fada. This area is marked by a small Dolmen and 12 standing stones. From here you can, should you choose, turn right (north east) to follow a well defined track to Clermont Cairn and the mast! My track returns back to where it starts over similar terrain but on a parallel route.
