[RWD version 1 ] Conigar is certainly wild and has reasonable views but would not be described as particularly dramatic to look at.

Conigar from the west.
The summit area had a pond with, as of a warm May day, an abundance of insect and tadpole life. The curious and unusual red colour in this picture was apparently caused by the colour of the water and coating on rocks in it.

Wild, life filled pond.

Moving towards Foilastakeen there are a series of small lakes surrounded by wild, untracked land.

Lough Fadda nearer with Lough Namrat further.

The Beara-Breifne way crosses the ridge and there is a stile with signs.

The summit of Foilastakeen is even less exciting than that of Conigar however there are good views of Gougane Barra.

Gougane Barra valley.

For variation the return went nearer to the edge of Gougane Barra. The land here becomes very rough and also there a number of fences. Look out for occasional stiles which are sometimes available.
