PMG Walk 68 - Buckoogh. After my walk on Croagh Patrick and Co. I had planned to hit a hotel lobby somewhere and get some tea, but then I noticed the time and though hmmm maybe I could do that other mountain with the funny name in North Mayo. Yes Buckoogh which I keep calling Buckaroo mountain :p So I drove like a boy racer and got to the base of the hill, half chewed half swallowed some food and hit the hills. I started probably from a bad place as I had to cross some fences but I was soon on the way up the hill. If I had gone a little further up the road the starting would have been slightly easier. The hill itself was straight forward and the only thing I can echo is that the summit is boggy as hell as everyone on MV has been saying. The cloud was down but the spirits were high. I then dashed down and tagged Srahmore on the loop walk back. I updated the GPS coordinates for the summit afterwards. The summit of Srahmore is obvious and has some nice views! The walk back to the car seemed to go on and on! Got back to the car just as it was getting dark! I was hungry at this stage and it was time to cook up some grub in the back of the Berlingo!
