[RWD version 1 ] This was the Mweelrea hike done as part of the Leenane walking festival. With over 70 people, there were a lot of stops, so it could be done at a faster pace. I have to credit the guides who led this walk (listed below). It was a very poor day with persistent rain, fog, high winds and very poor visibility, hence the choice to skip Ben Bury. The ascent was very pleasant, with a nice walk up a long a stream, then a gentle approach to the main summits. Beautiful views towards the end when the fog lifted.

Transport from the shore was by boat, so unless you have one waiting for you, it would be best to continue along to the SE spur, then Teevnabinia and keep going east towards the river (check simoburn PMG route).

All credit for this route goes to lead guides for Leenane walking festival; Josie Gibbons, Mike Keating & Harry Herriot
