Pass loch Thuairín Mhárta on its W shore in a NE direction. Take a bearing W of point 332m and descend along W side of waterfall crossing at base before entering track.

Assend with care along W side of waterfall at top look for safe crossing point (caution). NB;Seek and find a natural stone bridge, the further you travel along waterfall the easier to cross. Walk now in an E direction assending An Ré Mhor towards the obvious stone cairns. These stone piles are national monuments / burial sites of old chieftains, so treat with care do not disturb.
