This a circuit of the three big hills on Corraun.
Cloud cover and a hard wind driven mist really came in hard on Corraun Hill and Slieve Aghkerane. We missed the fantastic views of the corrie lakes and the wider area that would be available on a good day. There are cliffs close by this route and accurate route finding is important and I found the GPS unit invaluable to find the northern spur for the descent.
