Hill Walks

The following galleries are of photos from hill walks we have taken over the past couple of years. Some are part of the National Loop Walks.

Hungry Hill (685m) is the highest point in the Caha Mountains on the Beara Peninsula. It's name in Irish is Cnoc Daod, meaning "Tooth Hill". Hungry Hill is also the title of a novel by Daphne du Maurier about a family living in the area. The Cork-Kerry border funs along its northern flank.

The name of the Caha Mountains (an Cheacha in Irish) most likely derives from the Irish word ceachair, meaning mud or mire.
