denise-vosges on Aghla Beg (South), 2007
by denise-vosges  21 Oct 2007
The ‘Aghlas’ were my third experience of hill-walking in Ireland, after Brandon and Croaghaun (Achill). We followed David Herman's route (Hillwalkers' Donegal). We started the circuit from the little road near Procklis, from which we could see Aghla More on the right and Aghla Beg on the left. At the start we had to walk a little further north along the road than indicated in the book before we could head east, due to a "No Entry" sign. We then walked across an uncomfortable, boggy valley-floor before ascending Aghla Beg (564m), up to the surprisingly big summit cairn. This ascent was easier than expected because there were patches of vegetation which offered a smooth route through the scree slopes. From here, it was easy to reach Aghla Beg South (603m), with a very small summit cairn! From Aghla Beg South we had a view of Dooish, which we had climbed the previous day. Descending to a saddle, we crossed some rather stony, boggy ground before climbing back up to Aghla More (584m). The mist was clearing all the time, The descent was more difficult, with a rugged and boggy slope to Altan Lough in the valley. We were happy to find a path after this lough to get back our car in the falling-black night! We made it in 4 hrs 10 mins, just over the 4 hrs indicated by David Herman. Question: why this lack of recognition for Aghla Beg South, which is the highest of the three summits, yet has such a small cairn and doesn’t have a name of its own?
