The Mountains of Beara

The Beara Peninsula is made up of two mountain ranges. Firstly the Caha Mountains, which start at the Caha Pass and finish at Maulin. Then we have the Miskish Range which takes us to the western tip of the peninsula. I have long been fascinated by these mountains, the changing colours and the complexity of the valleys and hills. Take the Clogher Valley for example, hidden from view one has to climb steeply to sample its delight and be rewarded. Here are some pictures I have taken

Cumeengadhra is a deep valley off Glanmore in County Kerry on the Beara Peninsula. At the very back are some ruins, and the scene of an infamous murder that happened in the middle of the 18th century. With its towering peaks and cascading waterfalls, and remoteness it is one of my favourite locations to escape to and take pictures

Every entry involves a steep climb, but when you get there it is so calm and relaxing
The Pocket Suzie overlooking Glanmore Autumn Colours
The Ordnance Survey map for this area has it wrong. It claims the Pocket is in Cumeengadhra when in fact it is at the far end of the valley after Glanmore Lake Suzie overlooking Glanmore High up on the ridge between Adrigole and The Pocket looking towards Glenbeg in the distance
