A circuit over Mount Eagle and around its associated lake from parking at V343 998. Parking was quite difficult in the area, although they are clearly used to visitors - Mount Eagle was signposted at several points along the small roads from the R559. I was parked pretty precariously on a corner - the opposite side of the corner was marked 'no parking' - I was probably pushing it a bit and I would think twice about parking there again.

Having a tad more time than was necessary fro an up and down, I decided to look at making a circuit of it. I did get around, but I am sure there are easier ways. A spur runs east from the top and I used this for the descent - however after this it got difficult - there is a patchwork quilt of fields which involve a lot of wall & fence crossings. The fields however, look long abandoned and have been reclaimed by every kind of gorse, bramble and tussock known to man. A thoroughly unpleasant return to the car for me - however, I am sure that, with better route planning, this could be a great walk.
