Errigal/Derryveagh advice needed - brianhoey
Hi Brian, I've descended Maumlack to the R251 once before. Like everywhere else in the Derryveagh it is soaky and boggy underfoot after a wet spell. However, I came down this way several years ago in winter when the ground was crunchy with snow. There was no discernible path though. I am sure it is passable up stay high on the spur off Maumlack heading NW. I wouldn't drop into Croloughan Lough as the ground may be wet near the lake. As you lose height be careful not to veer to much W as then the ground dips and rises before hitting the R251. Follow the natural lie of the land avoiding this dop and rise if you stay NE a bit (close to Spot Height 243m and Bunleanarudda Bridge. Also, note that the stream close to the road "may" be tricky to cross after rain or on wet days. Hope this helps. If you're looking for a recent guidebook of the area, email me on info@adrianhendroff.com or check out this YouTube video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eg6_2Ektfvw Best of luck & enjoy the Derryveaghs.

Topped Mountain: Short & simple

A simple little Binnion to climb (the name Topped 'Mountain' is a bit of a stretch). A gravel path & steps from a carpark will see you reach the top in about 15 minutes, and you won't even need yo...

Crockmulroney: Good summit for Carn-baggers
Colin Murphy a week ago.
A fine hill with a well defined summit and great views. Plenty of parking spots along the R254 directly to the south of the summit. From there it's a relatively simple 1km climb to the top.
