Teer – Más an Tiompáin (763m)

Grade: Difficult

Duration:4.5 hours

Distance:13kms

Height gain: 650m

Start Point: Q508146

Following the Dingle way on an old bog road,in a generally eastern direction, for approx. 1 hour to the ruined village of Arraglen,where we head South West,again along the Dingle Way,before breaking off to start a gradual but steepish ascent to the ridge leading to Mas an Tiompáin (763m).A steep climb of 20-30 mins will bring us to the summit.We then descend due south to the ogham stone and follow the Dingle Way all the way back to Teer. Care is needed in the initial stages of this section as it is quite eroded and the underfoot conditions tend to be quite soft and wet,being very peaty ground,as we descend initially from the ogham stone,before the track levels off.It will be still quite wet and soft going until we reach Arraglen.It is then an easy walk back to base along the old bog road again.
