Ballybraid / Ballyboy Viewpoint

Trail description

Starting at the Shay Elliot car park, the trail follows forest roads and walking trails in a westerly direction to an open knoll, the Ballybraid Viewpoint. From here the walker has splendid views over Cullentragh and Mullacor to the North and West and Cloghernagh to the South which guards the North Eastern approaches to Lugnaquilla one of only a handful of Irish Monroes (mountains over 3,000 feet).


Warning! When venturing into the hills visitors are advised to be equipped with waterproof clothing, strong shoes or boots, a drink, map and compass.
