From the pet farm we follow the track in a NE direction and cross the newly constructed low stone bridge over the Feohanagh river and on to the ridge south of the traditional Cosán na Naomh route to Mt Brandon.This is a long gradual ascent with little relief along the way until we pick up Cosán na Naomh at approx. 600m and continue to the summit (952m).For our return journey we basically retrace our steps back to the starting point
