Leaving my car on the main road I followed the track northwards towards Shannavara. The track becomes non existent in places and can be completely waterlogged in a few patches. Judging from the OS maps I had expected some wet and had worn a pair of wellies which were appreciated in those spots but were a curse on the hills.
The lake on the left is ​occupied by a few strange structures; a house on an islacd in the middle of the lake, another building with some circular tanks at the southern end and the remnants of a broken dam (I think?) at the northern end.
The summits are resident to some fantastic views of the Maamturks, the Bens, The Aran Islands and more.
