Route taking in Keamconneragh, Teeromoyle Mtn, Coomacarrea, Meentog and Macklaun, starting from V63684 85210 in front of a ruined cottage.

The forecast for today was brutal, particularly from noon on, heavy rain, and more worringly, very high winds were promised. Having the advantage of an early start, I decided to stick with the plan A route, but to reverse the direction from that I had originally intended, thus hopefully avoiding being on the toothy ridge of Keamconneragh in heavy winds.

Unusually for my plans, this one worked a dream, the winds increased steadily all day, but I had cleared the tooth in relatively light winds - the wind direction had also helped - being predominantly south, the bulk of Teeromoyle blocked the worst of it.

Macklaun is really an extension to the normal round of Coomasaharn up by the Knocknaman spur and down by the Keamconneragh one, a route that is very complete in itself. This direction had the added bonus of allowing me to decide whether or not to include it. It is a hard slog though, the col between Meentog and Macklaun is full of nasty stuff; hags 8ft high with no easy way on or off; sucking bog etc.
