We took inspiration from Track 2207 and parked at the Ballaghbeama Gap but about 1.5km on the SW side where there is a lay-by (at the end of the GPS track) where you could fit 2 cars comfortably. We cycled to the N end of Cloon Lough and locked the bikes to a telephone pole. We followed David Hernan's Hill Walker's Kerry route to Coomalougha Lake (in his book he describes going back down the gully we climbed, something I would not like to do) from there we picked our way between pinacles to cross the inlet stream by one of the larger pater-noster lakes before ascending to the ridge W of An Corrán. from here navigation was simple along the ridge. It was beautiful weather and the scenery is breathtaking. One of the most beautiful walks I've ever undertaken.

Eight Arderins in one walk and a spectacular wild route.

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 5h 34m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.

* Note: A GPS Height in the elevation profile is sourced from the device that recorded the track. An "SRTM" height is derived from a model of elevations for parts of the earth. More detail
