Circular route over Stradbally Mountain, Beenoskee, Coombane and Beenatoor from Annascaul Lake.

Route starts from the parking places west of Annascaul Lake (Q58247 05104) and heads north up the track until that peters out on the plateau at a height of about 360m. The track then heads north towards Beenoskee - I had intended to contour towards Stradbally earlier, but in the event I was only 150m from Beenoskee before I headed east to Stradbally. From there back over Beenoskee, Coombane and Beenatoor.

From Beenatoor, I headed a little east in an attempt to outflank some of the furrows cut by numerous streams heading towards Macha na Bo. This was only partly successful; as I turned south, I found myself climbing in and out of a goodly number of these, some surprisingly deep.

I rejoined my outward track at the edge of the plateau. This walk, on a good day, must have spectacular views. Unfortunately I saw none of these; above 300m visibility reduced to 50m and the rain fell in sheets all day.
