Parked across road from track to Ballone, room for two cars without restricting access, further parking 700m along road at Ballavoulen. Took track marked on OS 1:50 toward highpoint on Cnoc Ceislein and followed ATV track almost to summit. Great views. Dropped toward track to Cnoc an Leoid, not marked on OS 1:50 and headed over the hill toward Lealty, missed return track also not marked on OS 1:50 so had to backtrack then return to car. There are a few landrover tracks around this area not marked on the 1:50 map, at home checked online and they all seem to be on the 1:25 map. Good short winters day with great views.

I've only done Cnoc Ceislein as an extension from Fyrish - think I got a bit confused with non-mapped tracks too when I tried to make it a circular route .. :lol:
