On a journey to Beara peninsula today, it was a glorious though cold day, and there was some snow on top of the Caha mountains, especially Hungry Hill had a lovely dusting of snow.
The landscape on this peninsula is superb, you have the sea (Bantry Bay) on one side, and you have the mountains which are very rocky, and much to my taste to your other side. There is lots of Gorse growing, but also Fuchsia and Rhododendron, whole hedges of Fuchsia flower from May till November, this makes the road very beautiful. There are also lots of Holly and Rowan trees. Lots of boggy land too, and bracken. The main town on the peninsula is Castletownbere, a little fishing town.
Here are some of the views along our way.

Hungry Hill (685m high), one of the Caha mountain range peaks. This range of hills/mountains is mostly made up of old red sandstone, which is composed of mainly quartz and/or feldspar.
