A group of six met in Cronin’s Yard on Sunday the 24th for our walk on the Eastern Reeks. We set out in bright cool weather, ideal walking conditions. Leaving the track into the Hag’s Glen near the first bridge we followed the stream flowing from Loch Cummeenapeasta to the shore of the lake. After a brief rest it was onwards and upwards through the boulder fields to Cruach Mhór at 932m. From here we moved carefully along the ridge to the Big Gun at 939Mtrs. We took a well-earned lunch break at the col before tackling the ridge up to Cnoc na Péiste and on to our last high point Maolán Buí at 973m. before heading down The Bone and our walk out the Hag’s Glen to Cronin’s Yard for a cuppa and chat before heading home.
