Climbed from the eastern side, which is accessed from a forest track running along the Skerdagh river. Parked at 014015 at the side of the forest track. There is an area of open hillside here bounded on either side by forest which gives a clear view to the summit of Buckoogh. There is a small area of nuisance clearfell to cross before the easy going of the open hillside. Climb parallel to the forest boundary following a small stream, aiming for the rim of the small corrie lough backed by steep slopes. From the S end of the lough climb steeply above the lough, hands may be necessary depending on how steep you want to make it. Pick up a fenceline and follow towards the summit along the edge of the corrie. Great views across the lough to Glenlara and Birreencorragh to the east which are now vying with views to the SW across Clew Bay to Croagh Patrick and the jumble of mountains behind, including a cloud topped Mweelra.
Have to break away from the corrie rim to reach the broad summit area which is really unpleasant as Simon has commented. There are stunning views from the top in all directions and with the clarity of vision I wonder what the mountains far to the east were? Took about one hour to reach the top and I then dropped down steeply by the N ridge. Very easy going and can follow fence line along boundary of the forest. I crossed the fence and cut through an area of recent clearfell with newly planted Sitka Spruce, not too difficult underfoot and soon reached forest track. A right turn and downhill brought me back onto the main foresdt track through the valley and I was back at the car in 2 1/4 hours. I used the 1995 map which shows a track running right around the base of Buckoogh to the N - this is no longer there. A short but rewarding climb to an excellent vantage point over the rest of the Nephin Beg range - no one else about on this fine day. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/299/comment/1974/
