This walk is not for the faint hearted.It involves a very steep ascent from Loch Cruite to Brandon Peak and also includes a short crossing of a sheer narrow ridge en route, so a head for heights is essential.From Brandon Peak we cross another narrow ridge “An Géarán” and loop around to descend via a zig zag track to the end of the road at Mullaghveal,where we will have dropped cars.
