Used carpark at Errigal, crossing road and following stream downhill before crossing bog SE over river and then climbing the slopes of Maumlack. The ground was wet but no real problem and there are great views across the valley to Errigal & Mackoght and across Dunlewy Lough out to the Atlantic. The ground levels out and have to take off pack to squeeze through the deer fence. Rocky summit area and beehive cairn of Maumlack reached in just under one hour - panoramic views over the very sizeable plateau, SW to Slieve Snaght and NE to Dooish. Steep drops to N as skirt around Croloughan Lough below. I took a bearing on group of little loughs nestled just before the climb up Dooish which could prove useful in poor weather. Meet the deer fence as climb again and can follow before turns sharply to the L (in need of some serious repair along the top of Edenadooish). Final climb to the summit is mostly over rock and is a pleasure with big views all around. To the N the line of hills from Errigal to Muckish lie across the valley, to the S the rugged outline of the Bluestacks, to the W the coast and Slievetooey, to the E the further Slieve Snaght and just about the Sperrins. Dropped down 200 m to NE for Snaggartnadooish (see for next part of walk). Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/187/comment/1666/
