Short Summary created by Onzy,  21 Jul 2015
Droppa is a satisfyingly shaped peak well situated in the circuit of hills surrounding the Glantrasna valley, and overlooking Glanrastel to the south.

It will most usually be reached from Cummeenbaun. From Glanrastel, parking at V80498 57651 A, over Cummeenbaun to the summit, and from Glantrasna, parking at V82637 59648 B, up the ridge to Cummeenbaun and onto Droppa itself.

It can be combined in a number of longer routes, particularly the circuit of Glentrasna, parking at either V82637 59648 B or V80519 60522 C allows access to a round taking in Knockreagh, Coomnadiha, Caha (not MV-listed), Droppa and Cummenbaun. In either case an amount of road-walking will be necessary. The entire circuit should take around 6 hours. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1471/comment/18099/
