5 mile walk from near junction of A18 and B10, walked along B10 to Millennium Way then headed south and followed little trail onto Carraghan, from there headed back to path then up trail onto Beinn-Y-Phott, ate lunch just below summit out of the bitingly cold wind, from here headed back to car then went there-and-back onto featureless Mullagh Ouyr. Perfectly clear and sunny, could see a long way from Merrick in the north to Holyhead Mountain in the south, from Slieve Donard to the west to the Forest of Bowland east. A few people about. Earlier that day bagged Snaefell, Clagh Ouyr, Beinn Rein and North Barrule in equally good but less windy conditions.DanTrig20/10/2019
