This a circuit of the Baurearagh Valley on the Beara Peninsula. Starting on the Kerry side of the Caha Pass this circuit takes 6 hours approx. If you start at the tunnels on the Caha pass you will have a moderate climb to Coomnadiha at under 700m. Naviagation is easy at the start as you are following the ridge westward but once you get to the top of Caha the terrain is pretty featureless and a compass would be required on days with low viz. For the last section of the walk I got lazy and tried to take a short cut across an impassable section of Rhodedendron covered hillside. If following this track I would recommend ignoring the last section and carry on down the valley till you make the main road.
