After about 1 km, the forest changes to become this.
Well, after another 500 metres its all young christmas tree type plantation. That's Doomore mountain behind, or Dún Mõr, which has a large cairn on the top, and small ones too, but not seen in this pic. I did not climb to see. Apparently if I had continued this path it winds up this rock to the cairns. 3 hours walk there and back, not suitable for this time.
I turned back. As I re-entered the Native Woodland area again, in former lands of the O'Hara's there was a trail that intrigued me.
I had decided this was not really a suitable Bards In The Woods forest, but a nice quiet place to stop off and wander if you are passing. However, see how I change my mind about this later.
Water features here barely exist.
Then this to climb to get into the car park, this pic being about a third of the steps to climb.
Another place that folks parked here may well be adventuring too, is to Tullaghan Well, near the Hungry Rock, visited by W.B. Yeats who called it the Hawk's Well after a nearby Hawk's Rock, and Hawks Well Theatre in Sligo is named after this well
As it was late- ish afternoon I avoided this well this time.
Hmmm, maybe a 'special' Bards In The Woods can be offered, being a trek to Hungry Rock, have some picnic there, head off to Hawk's Well, see if we can find a way, a few bardic moments there to celebrate, then back to the car park picnic table to relax and complete picnic among the trees.
What do you think of that idea Woodland Bards?
I left here to get to my fourth and final woodlands this afternoon. It was well after 6 pm as I left though.
