Carrauntoohil and MacGillycuddy's Reeks : A Walking Guide to Ireland's Highest Mountains Paperback
by Jim Ryan
The MacGillycuddy's Reeks are Ireland's highest mountains with Carrauntoohil tallest at 1039m.
Occupying about 100 square km., they stretch from the picturesque Gap of Dunloe in the east to Glencar in the west.
Attracting over 25,000 walkers annually, they are a wonderful playground.
However, many routes are not clearly marked and mist or fog covers them for three quarters of the year.
Access to a proper guide is therefore essential before venturing on to the Reeks.
This guide to 20 of popular walking routes on the Reeks contains full-colour maps specially commissioned from the Ordnance Survey, clear photographs and precise map references.
However, this is not just a walking guide. It also encompasses the history of the area, its geology and natural history, its place names and people.
Useful information on travel and accommodation is also provided.
It will be the most comprehensive guide to the area to be published for some time.
