This walk is somewhat similar to another that has been uploaded, however it has a longer and more interesting return going south, nearly as far as Paddock Hill and returning near the "Red Barn" to the east of Scarr.
Walking along Lough Dan and the Inchavore River you will see a lot of recent felling. The route then goes up Kanturk Mountain and continues onto Scarr
On Kanturk, looking south.

Descending this route take a sudden turn left into the forest. This is not at all obvious so note its position on the map above as the most southerly point of the track.
You will know you are on the right path if you come upon a Mountain Meathail bivouac a couple of hundred metres into the forest.
Bivouac Hut

From there the route follows a variety of paths and forest borders.
Varied mid-level return

The Red Barn with Scarr in the background

At one point there is a "Red Barn" after which the route meanders around and eventually returns by another not very obvious route to Oldbridge.
Looking north there is a view of Djouce flanked by War Hill (l) and White Hill (r).
The photo shows War Hill and Djouce with a pile of cut trees lit by one of the few watery sunbeams of the day.
