PMG Walk 66 - Ben Beg Horseshoe. I had intended on the walk being smaller and not doing so much of the ridges but in the end I couldn't help myself. As many have said before there are many (too many) fences to be crossed doing this route. Also my final descent could have been better planned as there are walls with wire fences stopping easy access to the road but difficulties were overcome in the end. Some great views from Bunnacunneen!
