Starting at the Gap of Dunloe, walk leader Frank McGonigle will take the group up in the eastern Reeks, stopping first at Glas Lough. From here it’s onwards and upwards to the summit of Purple Mountain at 832m, which towers above the Lakes of Killarney and the Black Valley.
From here, the route will continue along the broad mountain ridge before turning north to Toomies South and the cairn at Toomies Mountain. The descent is to the north and the walk will finish near Kate Kearney’s Cottage. Transport will be by car back to the start at the Gap of Dunloe.
