This is the standard 'short' (no detouring to Kippure) circuit of the Kilbride firing range. For the majority of its length it's on paths (save for when they vanish in the peat groughs particularly prevalent in the col between Corrig Mountain and Seefingan) but the going is very moist in places.
On the way up Seahan we met another walker coming down; after pleasantries were exchanged he informed me that a number of knuckle-draggers on quad bikes had just left the summit (claiming they'd been riding around in the forest and had 'got lost'...yeah, right). He also said that one of them had become stuck in a bog hole and had asked for assistance in getting out; I wish I'd been there so I could have refused too (and laughed heartily).
