this is a straight forward easy walk starting and finishing at the syha.It has some stunning veiws and the corbett leum uilleium is the better of the two mountains being slightly more rugged and affords great unhinderred veiws over to the marmores

Between the station and Leum Uilleim you need to stay as far SE as you can between the railway and the ridge to avoid the peat hags, i.e. if you go clockwise you want to get left and high as soon as possible - otherwise tedium awaits. (And reverse than when going anti-clockwise.)
