Mweelra 814 A guided hike to the hightest mountain in Connacht

Mweelrea at 814m commands a lofty position being the highest mountain in Connacht. 
It has a mind of its own when it comes to weather predictions. Today was no exception. 
Our guided hike commenced in the Doolough Valley on the upper shores of the lough. The heavy rain right from the start created a sense of apprehension as we looked up into the large corrie and our ascent route via the ramp. 
However shortly the rain cleared and we enjoyed the views of the large rocky amphitheater as we approached the ramp. On reaching Benbury the fog had obscured all views so we had to walk almost blindfolded across the plateau and ascend to the summit. A brief clearing in the fog opened up glimpse of silver strand and the ocean. 
Thanks to all who travelled from many parts of the Island even as far as Beara in Cork. 
Congratulation upon reaching the highest point in Connacht.
