Up the hill from the other side on a beautiful day. A real stone circle and a fake, a green river valley, a wedge tomb in cool woodland, a long boggy climb, a flowing spring, a mountain kitchen and a winged man.
Sheep’s Head Way
Cascades, a castle, a tomb – hill, rock, bog, forest and boreens. From Drimoleague to Bantry over Mullaghmesha.
Recalling my best hiking and sketching memories of 2017. Part 3.
From Ahakista to Durrus on the Sheep’s Head Way
Mud, monuments, rainbows and cairns. A short loop around Mount Corrin
Home along the ridge, on the horns of a dilemma, tomb with a view, lunch at Finn McCool’s.
A familiar face recognised, loughs and lookouts. Signs and signals from the past.
Walking a familiar trail, noticing things missed before, re-visiting an idyllic spot, light at end of the world.
A change of plan, in and out of the clouds, midges for lunch, losing a familiar trail
Touched by a rainbow. Slipping and sliding. A giant’s seat.
