|Solo. From the minor road to the west. From the start of the rough path to Caherconree (promontory fort) where there is limited parking. Followed path, which is marked on the ground with posts but is not marked on the OSi 1:50,000 map. Continued to summit cairn of Caherconree and on to Baurtregaum. Returned same way. Thick mist all the time and rain most of the time.||pwbellarby||23/07/2018|

|Claggy day up top and climbed from sea level, warm and wet until the strong winds on the top came in and the clag turned to rain. Not much in the way of views, but the sense there were some good ones to be had. With NP and MT.||kenmorti||15/07/2016|
