Short Summary created by scapania,  19 Oct 2010
Turn off the N86 about 200m west of Derrymore bridge at Q741 111 A, up the narrow road until the road swings around to the left, with a cottage and a track on the right, where there is parking for a couple of cars. Head up the track, over a stile onto the open mountain and across the Dingle way. Follow a faint path to the right of the gorge of the Derrymore River, until you reach the second of three lakes high in the glen. Go right from here to a flat area around Fionn MacCool's Table, then pick a line diagonally left up through bands of rock and across the slope to reach the col with Caherconree. Head left from the col up broad, rocky slopes, until the broad summit is reached.

From here, it is possible to head north, over point 819m and down the shoulder known as Scragg. However, this, like most of the spurs on the north side of the Slieve Mish, involves a long, steep, descent over dense heather, rocks and tussocks of Molinia grass, so is very unpleasant.
